Trees the Season

(From left to right: South Street Seaport, Bryant Park, Metropolitan Museum of Art, American Museum of Natural History, Botanical Garden, Rockefeller Center)

With just near every New Yorker dashing throughout the city on last minute gift-runs, why not take a moment to take in the greenery of the Season. All throughout the City, many magnificent trees will be shining through the Holiday season, leaving us all with a little extra cheer.

South Street Seaport: Nicknamed the “Seaport Chorus Tree,” this 50 foot Douglas fir has the Big Apple Chorus performing in front throughout the season.

Bryant Park: Truly Canadian, this tree was shipped from Quebec and decorated by a designer from Toronto.

Metropolitan Museum of Art: This 20 foot Spruce is adorned with 18th century Neapolitan angels and hundreds of crèche figures.

American Museum of Natural History: Themed “Fold the Museum”, over 500 origami animals were created by volunteers to cover this tree.

Botanical Garden: Enjoy the elaborate train show and gingerbread displays that surround this 26 foot Fraser fir.

Rockefeller Center: The granddaddy of them all, this tree lighting in November marks the unofficial start of the winter holidays.
