The 2009 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree

Taken today around a quarter past 5. Looking back at past trees, this one isn't as large as 2006's, but I think it's the most magnificent since I began photographing them in 2005. Walking past it, it seems so much fuller than its predecessors.



I don't know if this is a good barometer of the local economy, since it might have been from the cold weather, but there definitely weren't as many people at Rockefeller Center this evening. I had no trouble at all getting into the best spot. Even walking down Fifth Avenue afterward, there weren't the usual thick crowds of tourists.
