Our holiday tree was delivered and installed yesterday! Thanks so much to the NYC Parks Department for helping us out and to Domes Tree Farm for providing us with another wonderful Concolor Fir. This week we will decorate the tree with lights and glitter glass ornaments from Tinsel Trading in preparation for the tree lighting ceremony on Winter's Eve, broadcast live on WABC-TV.
