Top of my wife's bucket list was the Rockefeller Tree. No pictures can do it justice. The amount of people there reminded me of Disney World Magic Kingdom after the fireworks. Just be patient and work your way towards the tree. Truly magical!!

Visited last time to see the Christmas Tree! Unfortunatly, there was a terrible blizzard and all the lights were off! It was a bit disappointing. But will definitely come back for a better shot!
