Historic Richmond Town
441 Clarke Ave.
Imagine walking through an entire historic town at night guided by the glow of old-fashioned lamps. Historic Richmond Town's annual Candlelight Tours include candles, oil lamps, flickering fireplaces and a “wassail bowl” reception in the Courthouse.
Celebrate the annual return of this re-created tropical forest environment filled with over 500 live butterflies. The butterflies live in a magical summer-like environment, surrounded by tropical flowers and lush vegetation in 80-degree temperatures. It's the perfect exhibition on a cold fall or winter day, and great for children and adults.
Rockefeller Center's celebrated tree lighting is a holiday-season staple. The colorful and towering tree is a sight to behold, and the lighting ceremony always features celebrity guests, musical performances and more. The tree can be seen from the ice-skating rink below and is a must-visit for anyone in NYC during the holidays.
