The streets surrounding Rockefeller Center get very crowded during the Christmas season. Sidewalks that are usually fairly clear at night and on weekends become nearly impassable. In addition to the tourists and local folk making their annual pilgrimage to the Rockefeller Center Tree, the street vendors who normally close up after office business hours stay open to service the big crowds.
This year, the owner of one of the hot dog stands has outfitted his cart with Christmas lights to make his business stand out from the rest.
