The Rockefeller Centre in New York was built during the height of Americas Great Depression in the 1930s and was the first project to combine retail, entertainment and office space in what is often referred to as a “city within a city.” This complex features several outdoor plazas and 19 buildings (14 of which are the original art-deco structures), and spans from 48th to 51st and Fifth to Seventh Aves.
In 1987 it was declared a National Landmark, recognized for its unique combination of modernist architecture with a concentration of commercial and business enterprises. Most popular highlights include Radio City Music Hall, the GE Building (30 Rockefeller Plaza at 49th St), the ice-skating plaza and the Top of the Rock observation deck. Tours are easily arranged with expert historians giving you an extraordinary look into the rich history and breath taking artistry of New York`s most famous landmark.
