Venue Description: John D. Rockefeller, Jr.'s vision of a "city within a city" has come to fruition in Rockefeller Center. Home to a multitude of attractions, it is frequented by tourists and New Yorkers alike. With over 100 stores, including Coach, Swarovski, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art Store, Rockefeller Center is a prime retail location. Its 40 places to eat, from Dean & Deluca Café to Del Frisco's Steak House, offer fine dining or on-the-go treats for every taste. The Radio City Music Hall stages the world-famous Rockettes in the Christmas Spectacular. NBC Studios allows visitors to peek behind-the-scenes of their news broadcasts and most famous television shows. Looming proudly over the Ice Skating Rink, the Tree at Rockefeller Center has been twinkling with Christmas lights for over 75 years. The lush and colorful Channel Gardens run the length of the outdoor promenade, which is decorated with 8-foot, aluminum and brass wire angels during the holiday season. Beautiful, cast bronze Fountainhead figures perch on the east ends of the Gardens' six pools. The heroic 'Atlas' sculpture, one of New York's greatest Art Deco icons, stands 15 feet high on Fifth Avenue. The centerpiece of the Center, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, is one of the world's most famous office buildings. The fifty-sixth floor houses the private offices of the Rockefeller family itself. Its Top of the Rock Observation Deck offers a 360-degree, crystal-clear experience of the city unlike any other. It offers unobstructed views of the north, south, east, and west sides of Manhattan from the building's 70th floor. Originally constructed to accommodate the Associated Press, 50 Rockefeller Plaza (50 Rock) is the only building in the Center built out to the limits of its lot line.
