Rockefeller Center

Rockefeller Center (or Rockefeller Plaza) is a complex of 19 commercial buildings covering 22 acres between 48th and 51st streets in New York City. The Rockefeller Center complex was conceived by John D. Rockefeller Jr. in early 1929 in the hopes of revitalizing the area. Despite the stock market crash, construction continued, providing much needed employment during the Great Depression.

 

Rockefeller Center is home to NBC Studios -- the Today Show, Saturday Night Live, and Late Night with Conan O'Brien all proudly broadcast from there. Atop the GE Building is the famous Rainbow Room, the star of which is the silver and gold room itself, complete with slowing rotating dance floor.

 

The holiday season brings on some of the most memorable of Rockefeller Center experiences. There's the larger-than-life Christmas tree in the center plaza, fantastically decorated, all overlooking the ice-skating rink below. And around the corner is Radio City Music Hall, most well known for the stunning dancing line of Rockettes from the annual Christmas Spectacular.
