Rockefeller Center Area
Striking Art Deco office building complex consisting of 19 buildings and scores of upscale shops and restaurants connected by underground corridors. Tours of the NBC studios and Radio City Music Hall are recommended, as are a stroll through the Channel Gardens (so called because they lie in the space between La Maison Francaise and the British Empire Building) The area is always attractively planted -- even in the midst of winter you will find something pretty growing here. In the winter months, strap on your skates for a spin around the world's most famous ice skating rink.
Go at off-peak times, since the rink can get VERY crowded.
Center is busiest during the winter holidays, when crowds flock to see
the Christmas Show at Radio City Music Hall and then to skate and admire
The Christmas tree.
