  • Very cute!! It was so awesome to see in person. I had always wanted to go and finally went. Did not disappoint. Officers around for safety and peace as well. It was very nice to see everyone being cheerful and out and about after the last (nearly) 2 years.
  • What a absolute gem to see in the city. It's so nice and clean in this area, what is surprising since it's close to Times Square and it's not very clean at all there. Rockefeller Center has such beautiful grounds, nice rollerskating rink and just a nice atmosphere. One of the great free things to do and see in the city. Highly recommend checking this area out. 5/5. Follow me for more reviews, photos and tips.
  • Christmas season is the best time to visit this place. You would see amazingly decorated giant Christmas tree, enjoy ice skating, entry is free, however you need to pay for ice skating, enjoy amazing Christmas decorations; life-size angels, and so many good stuffs to enjoy. It has everything what New York City has to offer. Entrance is free. Subway train (B,D,F,M trains) station is just one block away; literally less then a minute walk. Take subway train to get there. The highest level of security is provided so that you can feel safe and secure.
  • Went skating on the coldest day yet this winter. If you layer up properly it's not that bad. Iconic location that didn't disappoint. Masks required while inside but not on the ice. Proof of vaccination NOT required, so I kept my mask on. Skates use buckles rather than laces, so easier to get on and off in my opinion.
  • It's kitschy and I love it! Hustle and bustle of big businesses. Good fancy bars around here. Grab a bite to eat at a fancy place or get a hot dog, hot nuts, or Mediterranean food at a cart nearby. I'm not much of a shopper but it looks like there are a lot of opportunities. Definitely worth going in the winter to see the pretty tree
