Rockland family donates tree to Bryant Park

Posted: Updated:

A Rockland family's spruce tree is now shining in Bryant Park.

Ann and Daniel Hladik, of West Nyack, donated the 55-foot Norway spruce to Bryant Park.

The Hladiks and their family, including their five kids and grandkids, took a trip into Manhattan to see their tree lit up.

The lighting ceremony was complete with Santa and his helpers skating around the ice rink while carolers took the stage.

The tree is dressed with more than 3,000 decorations. It will remain up for the rest of the holiday season.

For an interview with the Hladiks and to see extended footage of their trip to see the tree, go to Channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select iO Extra.
