Rockefeller Center 600 Fifth Ave. Christmas central in NYC seems to be the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center and its 80-foot-tall tree decorated with 45,000+ lights. The first Christmas tree was lit here in 1933, and today more than half a million people see it each day. The Rockettes kick up their heels nearby at Radio City Music Hall, and the big department stores display their magnificent decorated windows along adjacent Fifth Avenue. And this year FAO Schwarz is making a comeback with a new store here, complete with the famous clock tower and also a giant piano keyboard like the one Tom Hanks played in “Big.”
