Another amazing view of NYC. Here you can take a picture on a beam "high up." In all actuality its just a bench that they create to look like a beam high up.

The temperature took a nose dive (41 degrees) and our lightweight coats kept us inside the hotel watching Neil Diamond until later. Got to sneak a peek from a corner where the curtain wasn't pulled across all the way. Saw Al and company along with Orange Room. Skating rink was cool. Watched young girl being trained in ice dancing. Prices... More

The best views of New York, you get to see the beauty of central park and the Empire state building, we went late in the afternoon and managed to see the city in the day light, sunset and the start of night. Awesome, would recommend to anyone!

Rockefeller Center is a fantastic attraction. Lots of shops and restaurants. Was pricy to to to the Top - 30 Dollars, It was worth it if you have not done it, I did it during the day, but would have liked to do it at night also. It was a clear day and sun was beaming down. Highly recommend it.

apart from the roof viewing deck, there are plenty of shops and cafes downstairs and the famous ice rink used in winter. The artwork sculpture at the main entrance to the office tower is pretty good to.

Rockefeller Center always attracts tourists with cameras. Its a lovely venue with ice skating even during warmer weather, and it's worth a walk around the area. When in New York City, the area is a must.

We chose this over the Empire State Building and, having spoken to other people, we made the right choice, as regards the views from the top. The Centre itself is stunning, with beautiful marble and when we were there, they were making a start on constructing the ice rink outside. We purchased tickets for the "Top of the Rock" observation... More

We stumbled upon this and were very surprised. Had lots of shops inside and the ice skating rink was so amazing! We were there late at night so we did not see everything we could have, but what we did see was worth our little discovery.

We spent about 2 hours on the observation deck trying to make out all the major icons - Empire State building, Crysler Building, Yangkee stadium, New Jersey Queens, Brooklyn, etc etc. Better than Empire State Building in my books.
