Rockefeller Center, Radio City

Section: Midtown

Neighborhood: Midtown

Address: W49-51 and 5th to 6th

Is a sprawling collection of 19 commercial buildings over a 22 acre site in Midtown Manhattan. The “Rock” as it’s affectionately dubbed, is a marvel of Art Deco architecture and features some of the finest examples of public art in New York City. Frescos, sculptures, plaques, and rooftop gardens decorate the famous buildings. Radio City Music Hall is part of the complex and one of the most famous theatres in the world, featuring live concerts and performances by the Rockettes. One of the focal points of the center is a plaza featuring an ice skating rink that is open year round. It skirts the centerpiece which is a large Art Deco tower dubbed “30 Rock” and home to NBC. There are a number of other prestigious corporations renting space in the plaza including: Barclays Bank, Bank of America, and McGraw-Hill. The Rock is popular with tourists as there are hotels around the complex and there is plenty of dining and shopping available.

As this is such an expansive complex, there is no way a brief description can do it justice. For more information and RP inspiration, please see the official website: Rockefeller Center Official website
