Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting

In the winter of 1998, a couple months after I first moved To NY from Boston, I was talking to my youngest brother down in Florida, about 6 at the time, who had seen the lighting of the tree in Rockefeller Center on TV and swore up and down that he had seen me there on the broadcast. Although I had been within a few blocks that night, I tried to tell him it wasn't me on TV. He would have nothing of it; he was convinced. The tree was in NY, and I was in NY, and that was that. Well Jonathan, this year I was there, however it was well out of sight of the cameras, far above the fray. Here are some pictures for you.
I was invited to attend a dinner and observe the tree lighting from a balcony overlooking Rockefeller Center just across 5th Ave. It was a fun night, capped by a nice New York holiday experience, even for jaded denizen of the City like me.
Merry Christmas everyone, enjoy the holidays.


  1. Hello, where exactly did you see the tree lightning? Cheers!

  2. It was in one of the bank office buildings I was invited to as a client, don't remember which building, but it wasn't somewhere open to the public that you could reserve or anything, sorry.
