Rockefeller Center may be the big tree each year, but there are other notable Christmas trees lighting up!

Now updated for 2016

If you’re in Midtown or the Financial District, stop by the NYSE or Madison Square Park to see two more city trees. There will be food, performances, and loads of holiday spirit at both tree lightings.

The NYSE tree is no newcomer, first displayed in 1923! It lights up on December 1st at 4:55pm, with various performances starting at 3pm. Head down to the Financial District at Broad Street and Wall Street at the iconic New York Stock Exchange building.

Christmas lights, such a pain.

Madison Square Park hits the lights on December 6th from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. This will be the 104th anniversary of the tree! Beginning on December 24, 1912, it was the first community Christmas tree.
