I was passing here and took a little time to look around. It's a nice place but there are a lot of people. It is within close walking distance from 5th Ave and Time Square so it doesn't take very long to check it out.

Awesome tour. My husband and I did this tour on our first day in NY. Rodney was a fabulous tour guide- talked all about art, history, and background info on the Rockefeller Center. And even though we were in a group of 20 or so other tourists, we never had issues hearing him because he was microphoned to headsets given... More

This was a fantastic experience. We set up our NBC Studio Tour for first thing in the morning. We got there a little early to watch the Today Show live on the Plaza - very cool. The Tour itself was fantastic. Got to see where they taped Tonight Show, SNL, NBC Nightly News - and even at the end a... More

Nice to walk around as there are some cool stores above and below ground. Really cool to see the skating rink although it is not cheap to rent skates and skate for a while. The top of the Rock is also a must as you do get a great view. Definitely a site you should not miss.

Really nothing to see, not worth of visiting unless you want to skate for dirty high price (would prefer Bryant park instead).

We had pre-purchased tickets and the only time we could go was very rainy and cloudy. The super helpful and friendly staff are sure we understood there would be no view on this particular evening, but we had to use the tickets. It was actually very fun, and the misty, cloudy deserted observation deck was very beautiful in an eerie... More

A must see while in NYC. We took our family here the first night we were in the city and our girls thought it looked magical. It is worth a visit even if you are not skating and a New York landmark.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
