Wonderful Time At Roosevelt Island Holiday/Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony Tonight - Eat Your Heart Out Rockefeller Center

Wow, what a wonderful time for everybody at the Roosevelt Island Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony tonight in front of Blackwell House.

Will have more pictures and video of the festivities, songs and Santa's arrival soon, but here's a taste of the fun times with the Tree Lighting Countdown.

Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Public Safety Department Director Jack McManus was absolutely right when he said what a beautiful night it was and added:
... Rockefeller Center, Eat Your Heart Out.

The FDNY provided Santa Claus his sled to come to Roosevelt Island
