The Rockefeller Christmas Tree arrives in NYC this weekend

Written by

Finally, some good news this week! Bringing much-needed holiday cheer, the Rockefeller Christmas Tree will be arriving in NYC on Saturday.

RECOMMENDED: Full guide to the Rockefeller Christmas Tree 2016

Hailing from Oneonta, NY, the 94-foot Norway spruce is the second-tallest Rockefeller Christmas Tree ever. Once it arrives, it will have a few weeks to settle into its new home at Rockefeller Center on 49th St between Fifth and Sixth Avenues before the tree lighting ceremony on November 30. Then, it’ll be strung with 50,000 lights to illuminate the Rink at Rockefeller Center. The Rink’s already been open for a month, but it’s sure to get a lot more crowded with its new neighbor. 


Look what arrived today! Go visit the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and tag #timeoutnewyork. (📷
