Unusual, unexpected and always exciting, Rockefeller Center is home to some of New York Cityʼs most spectacular, talked-about events. Whether you’re out for the day or just a few hours, be sure to stop by and see what’s happening.
The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is a world-wide symbol of the holidays in New York City. The 2018 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree was lit for the first time on Wednesday, November 28, with live performances from 7–9pm, at Rockefeller Plaza, between West 48th and West 51st Streets and Fifth and Sixth Avenues. The Tree will remain lit and can be viewed until 9pm on January 7, 2019.

Finally made my way into the new @faoschwarz in Rockefeller Center last night. I loved the original FAO here in NYC and would visit regularly, so this is a very welcome return. The folks who put this new version all together did an amazing job! 🤩👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 The relaunched FAO has definitely done the work and set itself up to become a new favorite tourist destination. They also are bringing back the FAO Schweetz brand, produced in partnership with @itsugar , resulting in some damned attractive candy branding and packaging! Swipe to check out some more pics of the place! #candy #collectingcandy #faoschwarz #faoschweetz #itsugar #rockefellercenter #collectiblecandy #privatelabel #privatelabelcandy
