The EAB Plaza, Long Island's Rockefeller Center. It's more than a wanna-be. Now Reckson Plaza

Pros:Wonderful photo opportunities

Cons:Limited hours of Skating and Santa

The Bottom Line: This is a place for young families to start new Christmas Traditions.


Ever since attending the first annual lighting of the Christmas Tree at the EAB Plaza in November of 1984 I have either been there or watched the event on TV. It is one of those special annual events that helps bring in the spirit of the holidays. We have been here with our children and now our grandchildren. 

Update, The EAB Plaza is now the Reckson Plaza.

The New Full Review of Reckson Plaza (formerly EAB) can be found here

The Reckson Plaza (old EAB Plaza) 

This is a complex of two identical curved-glass 15 story sky scraping structures that are tied together at their base by an atrium that is flooded with sunlight during the day and has a soft radiance when the natural glow has faded. The buildings are very pleasing to the eye. European-American Bank (EAB), is now owned by Citi Bank. Even so, the name of the complex has not been changed. Citibank shares the office buildings with many other companies.

This is now owned by Rexcorp. and the new name is Reckson Plaza

... The place and parking lot are packed on the tree lighting night... 

... The tree, ice skating, Santa and all the other displays do make this an upbeat family place to visit and, like the spirit of Christmas, its free for the taking.
