“NBC, ice skating, restaurants, shopping”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Take an NBC tour, or if you plan well, get tix to SNL. Restaurants at ice-side not too expensive. Spent Thanksgiving there a few years ago. It's a must stop; St Pat's across the street,

“Great place to watch the sunset”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is a great place to watch the sunset as you have a full panoramic view of the city. It's also the best place for taking pictures of the skyline including the Empire State Building. Be warned though, in September when we visited the sun goes down VERY quickly! So you need to be quick if you are going to catch the best views as it goes from dusk to dark in less than half an hour.

The viewing platform here is quite small compared to the Empire State so be prepared to jostle for a position when it's busy. If you're patient though you'll get that great shot looking downturn or across Central Park so it's definitely worth the visit.

Ahead of your visit I would recommend downloading the free 'Top of The Rock' App if you have iPhone.

“let's hear it for jerry speyer”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Let's hear it for Jerry Speyer who brought Rockefeller Center back to being the spectacular art piece it deserves to be. Only a man with vision and respect for art and history could have achieved what he has. On behalf of everyone who sees this grand institution........Thanks Jerry. And as they said at Columbia "Oh Who Owns New York"?

“A famous landmark.”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

It's just a small park behind Radio City but what a park. It's really six square city blocks with Top of the Rock and subterranean shopping. You'' recognize Promethus at the ice skating rink, and Atlas across 5th Ave. and much more. There are tours, fine restaurants, and fun shopping.
