Rockefeller Christmas tree
The Rockefeller Christmas tree is perhaps the most famous Christmas tree in New York. It’s featured in many movies, but you likely remember it from Home Alone, as it’s the big tree in the final scene!
The Rockefeller Christmas tree never disappoints, it’s beautiful (massive!) and always decorated so beautifully. I love it, and always try and pay it a visit. If you can try and time your visit for the big lights switch-on, then definitely do!
Top tip! Visit the tree early in the morning or late at night, to get some gorgeous photos without the crowds.
Bryant Park Christmas tree
Bryant Park Christmas tree is another beautiful New York Christmas tree – and it’s my personal favorite in the city.
Bryant Park is a great place to visit in the city during the festive season, there’s a winter market and a free ice skating rink – so it’s a perfect place to go to enjoy the Christmas tree, and lots of other stuff to.
I love the Bryant Park Christmas tree because it’s big, chunky and always lit up really wonderfully. I also love the backdrop of the midtown skyline too!

Madison Square Park Christmas tree
Madison Square Park Christmas tree is one of my favourite Christmas trees in NYC… Because I got engaged in front of it!
My (now husband) Pad popped the question in this beautiful park, and so for me, this is definitely one of the best Christmas trees in New York City.
I love this tree because it’s so much less crowded than others, and it’s surrounded my lovely midtown buildings, including the Flat Iron building.
Washington Square Park Christmas tree
Washington Square Park Christmas tree is one of the New York Christmas trees that you might not have heard about. Washington Square Park is near a lot of the university campus, so it’s a popular park with lots of seasonal decor throughout the year.
The Washington Square Park Christmas tree is just beautiful – it’s located under the park’s famous archway too, making it extra special!

The Lincoln Center in NYC is one of the must-visit locations for the festive season (as it’s the place where the Nutcracker is performed!). If you’re visiting, you’ll want to take a lovely selfie in front of their beautiful Christmas tree too.
Lotte Palace Christmas tree
Lotte Palace is a hotel in the city, and their contribution to the city’s Christmas tree scene is so beautiful! The backdrop of the property’s Villard Mansion courtyard is just pure festive magic.
This is probably one of the most un-crowded Christmas trees in New York… so it’s a perfect choice for a holiday photo shoot (or even an engagement!).
