Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree
(Nov. 28, 2018-Jan. 7, 2019)
Arguably the world’s most famous holiday tree has lit up Midtown Manhattan since 1931.
The gala tree-lighting ceremony on Nov. 28, 2018, 7-9 pm, features performances from some of the world’s most renowned musicians.
The 2018 tree, decorated with 50,000 multicolored LED lights, features a new Swarovski crystal star, designed by architect David Libeskind, as its tree-topper. The new star measures 9 feet 4 inches, weighs 900 pounds and is adorned with 3 million Swarovski crystals.
How popular is this NYC holiday attraction? An estimated 800,000 people visit the tree every day.
The tree is lit daily 5:30 am-11:30 pm (until 9 pm on Jan. 7, 2019)
