Named after John D. Rockefeller the famous Rockefeller Center in Midtown Manhattan is an Art Deco New York City landmark. Spanning 22 acres and featuring 19 commercial buildings in New York including the GE Building (General Electric Building), where you can go on “Top of the Rocks”. But there’s also the Radio City Music Hall, the NBC Studios and a big shopping center in the three blocks long complex.
Top of the Rock
When staying in Manhattan many people do visit the observation deck of the Emprire state building, many of them skip “Top of the Rock”. Why…? Not sure, I do think it is because of the landmark itself and its name. I personally think the better view can be get on the Top of the Rock. The observation deck is located on 70th floor. Enjoy the amazing view of Manhattan. From here you’ll see another famous landmarks of New York, such as the Empire State Building, Central Park and much more.
As far as winter activities go, there is nothing more classic, more festive, more downright New York than skating at the rink of Rockefeller Center. There are many visitors each winter to enjoy the famous rink at Rockefeller Center Plaza. Skaters of all skills are invited each year to participate. Also is really famous because of the movie of Home Alone 2 : Lost in New York.
