Expert review of Rockefeller Center
Part of the original economic stimulus project, the 14 Art Deco buildings of Rockefeller Center were conceived by John D. Rockefeller in the nadir of the Great Depression as a way to create jobs and develop a commercial center in the heart of Manhattan. If you’re here during the Christmas season, you shouldn’t miss the massive Christmas tree that is one of New York’s holiday icons and the sunken ice skating rink. The views from the newly reopened “Top of the Rock” observation deck (entrance on 50th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues) might even be better than the Empire State Building.
