  • This was a very beautiful and magical place to be on Christmas night! The huge Christmas tree and all the decorations were breathtaking. Their was so many people every where, it would be easy to get lost in the huge crowd of people. Weekdays during the day are the best with the fewest crowds during this time the week prior to Christmas. Easily accessible by subway and walking. Close proximity to other attractions such as Times Square and Central Park. Everyone seemed to be content and happy to be there. This is definitely a 5 star place. I recommend going here if you ever have the opportunity .
  • Love coming here in winter! So magical and exciting. It’s fun to watch the people skating in the center and that tree! Wow what a tree. Make sure to stop by just so you can get a picture of it with your loved ones! The Lego store is right in the complex to so that’s always fun to visits! We look forward to coming back.
