Tips from NewYork-Visit:
– Take Mass Transit. The B, D, F and M trains to 47-50 Rockefeller Center Station will let you off right next to where the Tree Lighting ceremony takes place.
– Arrive early. The event begins at 8 PM, but with nearly 300,000 spectators expected to attend the lighting, you should plan to arrive by at least 6 PM if you want to get a good spot.
