I wandered down toward Rockefeller Center Tuesday night, since the lighting of the giant Christmas tree was scheduled. A couple blocks away, I turned around and went home because the sidewalks were so packed with people.
The police had barricaded the sidewalks so you couldn't cross the street anywhere near Rockefeller Center. In the background of the photo above, you can see the long line of people on sidewalk, who had to walk a couple blocks north just to cross the street.
I will take photos of the tree another day, when there are fewer people to deal with!
