The Basics

There’s a lot to see and do in the complex of 19 buildings and gardens. Daily Rockefeller Center tours highlight the rich assortment of art deco statues, sculptures, and murals, while benefiting from expert historians telling the story of the structure, gardens, and art. Entertainment fans can go behind the scenes on an NBC Studios tour, while New York City lovers can see it all from above at the Top of the Rock observation deck. Don’t miss the famous gilt statue of Prometheus in the Lower Plaza and Atlas on Fifth Avenue, or the underground shopping concourse with more than 100 stores and 40 restaurants. Rockfeller Center is included on most New York sightseeing tours.

Rockefeller Center Architecture and Art Walking Tour
The tour guide, Mindy, did a phenomenal job of providing all the information on the tour. It was the obtaining of the ticket for the tour that created a lot of frustration for me.

This was a Christmas gift for my son and his wife. Her sister and boyfriend went as well. They could not say enough about how much they loved the ride through the city. The light show was incredible. Again thank you. Karen Ketelsen

Ice Skating at Rockefeller Center

Winter brings Rockefeller Center’s ice skating rink to life, starting in early October. The 90-minute skating sessions are first come, first serve, with only 150 people skating at a time for an intimate experience. The famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, an iconic and festive annual NYC tradition, is lit at the end of November and stays up through early January, while the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and its stellar Rockettes make for another worthy tradition.
