Best view in the house. I'm a licensed Tour guide and everyone asks where is the best views. Rockefeller Center gives you views all of the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower all-in-one as well as Central Park and Far Beyond period it gives you the best seat in the house take the most iconic pictures of New York City. You can enjoy all three different levels of the roof which is not accessible in the Empire State Building or on the Freedom Tower. Definitely worth the visit. The wait was not long as opposed to the Empire State Building which you could usually wait for about 2 hours. Worth it
Iconic Art Deco building with wonderful city views of the Skyline. A cheaper and less crowded alternative to Empire state Building with in my opinion a better view of the park, and the city. Famous ice-skating rink give the winter months an extra festive mood and in the summer months a nice outdoors patio. Inside the lobby area multiple restaurant that cater to different budgets. Close to St. Patrick's Church and the Mega Lego Store it is a must visit for a tourist.
My husband and I visited NYC the beginning of March during the week.No trip to NYC is complete without a visit to Rockefeller Center! Since it was cold outside,we decided to go inside Rockefeller Center. Wanted to sit down and enjoy the beverages we had purchased there.It was extremely crowded at the time as it was close to lunch time.We had to walk around the center a few times until a table was vacated. Luckily we were able to sit at a table next to the ice skating rink.Most of the tables by the windows near the rink are allocated to the restaurants inside. There are also a few stores inside which you would never know were there from the outside.
It's never too overly busy here. Empire state took over two hours to get through, this was a half hour tops. Much better view and great shots of the city. I always recommend coming here for top of the rock. Also a great informative tour available of the whole plaza. Aaron was an awesome tour guide for that—funny and engaging.
As many New York attractions that are called "tourist" it is a place where you must go and see for yourself. The area in the middle of the buildings is incredible, the Prometheus golden statue and the the winter ice skating rink are so movie-famous that one must go ans check it out. Restrooms in the lower level of the Rock are pretty much the only option in the area. Beautiful place, and as I have seen it in many different occasions I still think it is the most significant place in midtown.
