This year's tree is a 74-foot Norway Spruce and was cut down November 9 in Mifflinville, Pennsylvania and then moved to Manhattan on a flatbed trailer.

It's a good-lookin' 74-foot Norway Spruce from Mifflinville, Pennsylvania, and it's here to warm your heart/make you walk eight blocks out of your way to avoid tourists for the next two months. The official lighting ceremony will be November 30.
