WALLKILL — The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was cut down in Wallkill and transported to Manhattan.

Rockefeller Center's publicist says the 72-foot-tall Norway spruce was cut down on Nov. 8 at the home of Shirley Figueroa and Lissette Gutierrez.

The tree was hoisted onto a 115-foot-long flatbed trailer for the trip to Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan.

It was erected Saturday, and decorated with 50,000 LED lights and a Swarovski crystal star.

The tree will be lit in a televised ceremony Nov. 28 and remain on display until Jan. 7.

Throngs of tourists visit the tree each year.
