Christmas Time in New York City
Every year New York City is home to some of the most magnificently decorated trees in the country, and many are meant specifically for public view. Here are some tree we recommend you see this season:
The Metropolitan Musuem of Art will display “The Angel Tree” in the museum’s Medieval Sculpture Hall from November 20th to January 6th. Visit metmuseum.org for more information. Since the 1960s this tree has featured crèche figures from the Neapolitan tradition of using old-world techniques and materials to create 1700s style figures. Angeli Art is the leading distributor of these figures in the United States. For more information visit angeliart.com.
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts lights their own Christmas tree each season on Josie Robertson Plaza. The tree will be lit this year on November 27th, and remain up until early January at Lincoln Center, Broadway and 63rd. Open to the public daily.
