Another movie classic tourist spot! We visited NYC in the first week of January, meaning all the Christmas decorations were still up! It was a massive bonus – even better when it was half the price to go just after New Year! So the Rockefeller Centre was dressed up just as beautifully and magically as in the movies.
The huge Christmas tree above the ice rink was just perfect. I didn’t go to the Top of the Rock, as I didn’t think the view would be much different – and certainly no better – than the Empire State. I do regret now though, not going up one of them in the dark! I can only imagine the views of the city lit up late at night, but I bet it’s spectacular. (This is one of my frustrations for not being more curious back then.)
