A dazzling display of sparkle and shine has made its way to the top of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.

A crane lifted a 900-pound Swarovski crystal star on top of the 82-foot, 14-ton tree. Work is underway to install 50,000 LED lights around the tree.

As NewsChannel 13 has been reporting, the tree comes from Queensbury. It was donated by the Lebowitz family.

The tree will be lit on Wednesday, November 30. You can watch the tree lighting that evening, right here on NewsChannel 13.
