You don't have to head to Manhattan's Rockefeller Center to enjoy festive holiday ice skating. Since 1989, the RXR Plaza, formerly known as the EAB Plaza, in Uniondale has hosted a major Long Island Christmas tree lighting. During the holiday season, the plaza hosts a large Christmas tree, about 80 feet tall, along with an outdoor ice skating rink.(Credit: Ian J. Stark)
