All of Manhattan is dressed up in its finery for the holidays. Last year I took you on a walk down Fifth Avenue. But this year I am going to take you on a visit to the spectacular tree at Rockefeller Center.
The Channel got its name because it is in between a building called, La Maison Francaise and the other named the British Empire Building. Just like the actual Channel in Europe which is in between France and England.

The gilded bronze statue of Prometheus by Paul Manship, overlooks the plaza. It was created in 1934.
The steps lead up to the perimeter of the plaza.
The flag poles are all dressed in their holiday finery. During the rest of the year flags from the United Nation members, about 200, are on display.
At the head of the sunken plaza we see this Mankind Figure. He is the Youth and on the other side is the Maiden. They were originally to flank Prometheus but the artist, Paul Manship, was not happy with the location. They were in storage for many years but now we can admire them in their current placement.
Below you can see just all the hustle and bustle that goes on here.
I wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
