    Rockefeller Center, some might say, is the hub of Manhattan and it's not known as a city within a city for nothing. Home to 19 commercial buildings and spread out over a space of 89,000 square meters, you'll get to see NBC New York Studios, the often-filmed ice skating rink during the holidays, the Associated Press, and the “30 Rock Building."

    Rockefeller Center has achieved National Landmark Status and is recognized not only for its entertainment value and commercial use but for its art-deco architecture and history as a Great-Depression project. This popular New York tour will give you all the sights and history of the eclectic entertainment and business complex.
