Right across from the gigantic Saks Fifth Ave light display, this totem will attract millions of 'jes' folks' not wearing masks and jammed into a 4 block area. Just arrived and set up today 11/13)

79 feet of holiday fun


who's de-tangling the 50,000 lights?

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City ushered in the holiday season Saturday with the arrival of a 79-foot (24-meter) Norway spruce that will serve as one of the world’s most famous Christmas trees, in Rockefeller Center.

The 12-ton tree was trucked in from the Price family home in Elkton, Maryland — the first time the tree has come from that state since the tradition began eight decades ago. The lighting ceremony is scheduled for Dec. 1.

The spruce will be adorned with more than 50,000 multicolored lights and topped with a 900-pound star with 70 spikes covered in 3 million crystals.

ps- The American Girl Doll Place store is now on 51st steps from the tree and near Cartier (same price class). Good Luck

The tourists will be outdoors.

The risk is on the American Doll and Cartier employees.

That’s a massive crane for what is a relatively light object. I suppose it’s good advertising for the crane company.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Maybe if it wears a gigantic mask everyone will be protected from it.

Even at the best of Xmas times, people in that multi-block area are crushed together by the tens of thousands. Even without the Covid aerosol contagion, it's a stampede waiting to happen.If you have ever been there, you know what I mean.

Have you been there lately?

I haven't seen big crowds in NYC for a long time.

That's what makes Christmas in the area extra special.

Rated lift capacity changes with boom extension and angle. The farther out the boom is (length) or the lower the angle, the lower the safe lifting capacity. Then add in the wind gusts that are common in NYC. With all the construction crane accidents in NYC over the last few years, better to be safe than tip a crane.
