There is probably no better place in all of NYC to feel the Holiday Mood than Rockefeller Center. The ice skaters, the tree, all the lights and the holiday store windows at Saks, it’s all there in a two block radius. Best of all there is a warm, dry indoors, an underground city, that surrounds the area. It's filled with stores and restaurants.
Our meeting spot is a little tricky to describe but it’ll be easy to find. As you look across the skating rink at the tree you will notice windows. These windows have a view of the rink and the skaters, it’s below street level. To get there go into 30 Rock (30 Rockefeller Center) and go down one flight. Try to get as close to the tree and you’ll see tables and chairs - that’s where we’ll meet. See photo below so you know what to expect.
We will be in the Rockefeller Center area for the day sketching the tourists, the stores, the lights and the holiday mood.
