A walking tour of the Seasonal Cheer and Holiday Spirit through the Christmas lighting of mid town
Starting at the Christmas market on the north east corner of Columbus Circle across from the fully decorated Time Warner Center your view is filled with lighting. We then weave our way down to fifth Ave to witness the largest snowflake hanging here and the Bulgari lighted jeweled Gecko watches over the scene. We go down 5th Ave past Trump Tower and into Rockefeller Center where we squeeze our way by the Christmas tree above the skating rink. On Sixth avenue is a line up of over sized seasonal decorations that lead us down to Times Square which is always bright and welcoming. There is an abundance of lighting along with fully illuminated signs that make this location the most visited spot in the world. I will answer all your questions about how did they do that?
We start at the Time Warner building and weave down toward Times Square. The tour turns south on 5th Ave at the largest snow flake in the world. After admiring the store windows and Trump Tower it is into Rockefeller Center and by the brightest Christmas tree anywhere. We end in Times Square.

End location: We end at Times Square

While this walk says Christmas is here very loudly, it is also crowded with cheerful visitors to our wonderful city. Depending on what time we are walking has much to do with the time it takes to complete. The sidewalks and Rockefeller Center will be full of people sharing in the joy of the season and all there is to see.
I can meet at your hotel and we get to the starting point which is Columbus Circle.
