A capture of the Lincoln Center Christmas Tree at night. The tree is a Colorado Blue Spruce, around 50 feet. The Colorado Blue Spruce holds its needles more than the other spruces, providing a beautiful Christmas tree look.
From the Lincoln Center website:
Lincoln Center is the world’s leading performing arts center. Located on 16.3 acres in New York City, the Lincoln Center complex is comprised of 
12 Resident Organizations, and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc. is one of those 12. The 11 other organizations are The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, The Film Society of Lincoln Center, 
Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, 
The Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, 
New York Philharmonic, The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet. Each organization has its own administration and its own board of directors. Together, these twelve institutions present thousands of performances, educational programs, tours and other events each year in 22 separate performance venues on the Lincoln Center campus.
Since Lincoln Center first opened its doors, it has been a major contributor to New York City’s cultural and intellectual life, with an internationally recognized dedication to artistic excellence.
Perhaps less apparent is the extent to which Lincoln Center serves as a dynamic economic engine for the region, hosting some five million visitors annually and transforming the Upper West Side into an exciting neighborhood that is now one of New York’s most desirable places in which to live and work.
