Why locals recommend it
The best place to take a picture with the biggest christmas tree in the city. It's one of the most iconic places in NYC during the christmas holiday. The ice skating rink is very popular. Go up top of the rock to get amazing views of NYC. If you get hungry, no worries, the ground floor has many places to eat at. Across the street from Saks Fifth Avenue, which offers the most amazing christmas light show.
