New York NY (17) – Rockefeller Center

The thing that came to my mind when I thought of Rockefeller center is big Christmas Tree.  However, that was before I was ever in New York.  That thought has since changed and there are other things besides a big Christmas Tree.  I’ve visited the Center a few times but never close enough to Christmas to see the tree.  Someday, maybe…

The following pictures were taken in different times of the years 2011, 2012 & 2013.
