Posted: Updated:

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the city.

The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has officially arrived.

The massive, 77-foot, 14-ton Norway spruce made its debut in Manhattan Saturday morning.

It was cut down Thursday morning in Florida, in Orange County.

The tree will be decked out in more than 50,000 multicolored lights and crowned with its iconic star.

The lighting will be held on Dec. 4.
