Great view of the upper side of New York City. You can see Central Park from the top. That have a great system for going to the top. You get a time window when you need to arrive at the elevators to go up. So you aren’t stuck in a line too long. You can take your time at the top. I would recommend going to the top of the rock vs the Empire State Building. Keep in mind the visibility when you go. Careful which tour you sign up for too. If you want the NBC tour make sure it states that or you may end up on an art tour around Rockefeller which is good, but it’s not NBC.
What can a reviewer write about Rockefeller Center that has not been written before. The Murals! The gleaming floor surfaces, indoor plantings . . . . More. . Well maintained grounds, good level of security personnel, great shops and good restaurants, convenient Concourse on Lower Level to avoid the cold and rain, with still more shops, restrooms and eye-catching displays. . For business office space, an excellent location for offices in midtown Manhattan. Highly efficient staff and good attention to detail. Well done maintenance and upgrades for comfort, climate control, security and state-of-the-art installations. . The Plaza Area outside and below can be magical. The rooftop plantings are beautiful above those lower Fifth Avenue Buildings, which make for a near perfect photo opportunity by appointment or tour. . The Building Management are doing a fine job and keep the legacy of the Rockefeller Family's wise construction high on the list of "to do" destinations in New York City. .
After recently getting married and adjusting to life with my husband, I was missing my Sister ~Friends! We decided to take a Red Eye to NYC!! We had a blast taking in the sights and enjoying conversations with the people of the city!! We were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality we received!! We rode uptown and downtown on the subway and didn't get lost!! We navigated Chinatown and Italian Village and found all kinds of treasures!! I can truly say...I ❤New York!!
Beautiful place and definitely one of those "must see in NYC"! Decorations are nice and very well put together! Christmas tree was beautiful and ice skating was fun. I recommend ice skating outside of rush hours, since there's less people, it's less expensive and service is quicker. Definitely also check out inside of Rocketfeller center, there's beautiful paintings on walls and ceilings, shops, cafe shops, places to eat and rooftop bar. Saks fifth avenue store is right next to Rockefeller center and during Christmas time they has this amazing Christmas decoration and lights with music outside. Definitely check this out as well!
Even with a week in New York City I did not have time to explore NYC as much as I’d like to. I did not get to the top observatory but I did get the opportunity to walk around and soak in the atmosphere. It was a beautiful but hot summer day when I went in June. While my teens were shopping at the Lego and Nintendo store close by, I took it advantage of exploring the inside of the The building. There were lots of people relaxing outside, under the shade of the trees and the flags. And eventually I ended up with a cool glass of water and a yummy glass of Prosecco; listening to some live music and enjoying an eye level view of the golden Prometheus statue. For me it was the perfect way to soak in the people and the culture.
