I always enjoy watching the ice skaters on the rink at Rockefeller Center. I also enjoy seeing the Christmas tree each year-both as they set it up as well as after it is decorated and lit up. The Sea Grill restaurant is on the level of the ice rink and you can dine and watch the skaters. The top of... More

Went here in July the weather was perfect for visiting the Rockefeller center. We got the tour and entrance to top of the rock with the New York pass. Arrived just in time for the tour so didn't have to wait long. The tour was with Jonathan who was a great tour guide, he made it more interesting and was... More

Beautiful gathering spot to enjoy a Starbucks. Great spot to take pics, relax, rest your feet before you head into LegoWorld or Nintendo World... Hint!! A hidden elevator (well i say its hidden, you'd miss it if you didn't know it was there, in a glass house looking thing) will take you straight to a great set of bathrooms. And... More

It's always nice seeing the tree at Christmas, but beware of the crowds especially if you have a stroller. I went on a Saturday in early December 2013 and it was beyond crowded. My friend and I had to grab on to each other to get through the crowds and not be separated. Be ready for a lot of pushing... More

For only $30 you can get in my opinion the best views of the city. It's 360 degree views from the top and you can see all the main buildings, though bring binoculars

Whilst Rockefeller might not be as high as Empire State Building, the view is arguably better because not only can you see the ESB, but the view of Central Park is superb. I'd also say that the pre viewing platform tour is better than ESB, or certainly was until ESB introduced the new exhibits. Rockefeller is usually much less busy... More

I'm sure this a great tour normally, but I probably wouldn't have bothered to review it if C. Patrick hadn't given us the tour. He was entertaining from beginning to end. Each and every part had a story. He was very funny and had a joke with everyone. The way he guided us through busy crowds was a miracle. The... More

Imagine your life inside a special Christmas snow-globe or a Currier and Ives card come to life, or a picture perfect Summer postcard. Christmastime is a fabulous adventure for young and old. Summer time is a great time to explore the area and relax. Take the tours to learn about the complex, the architecture, art pieces, sculptures and history of... More
