Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Adequately Barricaded

12.01.11 Bucky Turco

Nothing brings the yuletide greetings like barricades and to keep the world’s most important Christmas tree safe from the hordes of unruly tourists who flock to Rockefeller Center for the annual lighting ceremony, the NYPD created this spectacular metal maze of human pens during the preparations on Wednesday. Beautiful no? It’s like Liberty Plaza, Wall Street, Baruch College, the Mayor’s block and numerous other locations… just without the protesters.
