    This is where the Today show is filmed, where NBC studios is located, St. Patricks cathedral is right across the street, and Radio city music hall is just around the corner. During the winter you'll get to see the ice rink and Christmas tree which make this area even more beautiful.

    Rockefeller Center is giant magnet of people going nowhere in one spot with whole lot of places to eat and shop. Disability Access is one way in and one way out no flow pattern to it, you will get you stuck. Just great to see but need to leave quickly as possible.

    Hands down the best time to visiting New York City is during the Christmas season! I always recommend to fellow travelers who are looking to go the Big Apple to try to go in December. So especially if you are in they city during the holiday times Rockefeller Center is "The Center" of the holiday festivities! Check out the iconic Christmas tree and watch the ice skaters outside right in the middle of the city! It's absolutely magical!

    Iconic scene in New York with the famous Christmas tree. Definitely worth checking out, they also do a very cool projection onto a building in front of the Christmas tree. Check out the nearby Lego Store too.

    Love it! I suppose this could be nick-named The Media block...there's also ice skating, Top of the Rock, shops, restaurants, etc.

    Best time to visit is during the Christmas season. It is beautiful and the rink will be open so you can ice skate near the big Christmas tree! :D

    Whether it's the artwork, NBC store, ice skating, or even catching the Today Show, Rockefeller Center is one of the most popular places to which tourists flock. I have yet to experience two of its best offerings, though: live performances on the Today Show (like my favorite band!), or seeing the Christmas tree in December. Someday!

    I will admit that I was a bit disappointed by Rockefeller Center. It always seemed so large! The reality is actually pretty small but a great experience in the winter! it still excites me and is a tourist trap that I keep going back to, time and time again.

    Rockerfeller Center is the capital of Christmas. Here, at the end of a promenade of glowing angels you'll find the largest Christmas tree in America blazing with lights of all colors. At the base of the tree is the skating rink where people queue up for hours just for a few minutes of skating with Santa. Coupled with the shops of Fifth, a stop into St. Patrick's cathedral and a carriage ride through the park, a visit to Rockefeller Center makes you finally feel like it's Christmas.

Description:

Known for its iconic Christmas tree, up every December, Rockefeller Center is a sight-to-see year-round. Encompassing several city blocks, the center is packed with restaurants, stores, cafes, and even a rink for ice-skating (in the winter). Radio City Music Hal and NBC also call the building at Rockefeller Center home-- tours of each are available year-round.
