ONEONTA, N.Y. — One of the world's most famous Christmas trees has arrived in New York City.
The 75-foot-tall Norway spruce donated by Al Dick, of Daddy Al’s General Store in Oneonta, will stand in Rockefeller Center as a beacon of the holiday season.
The NYPD released a video Saturday morning of its highway unit escorting the tree into the city.

The tree will be decorated over the coming weeks.
The annual tree-lighting ceremony will be held on Dec. 2 at 7 p.m., but there will be no in-person spectators because of the coronavirus pandemic, according to NBC.
The pandemic has caused the cancellation of other New York holiday customs including the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, meanwhile, will be a virtual event this year.
