    Rockefeller Center is the hub of Manhattan! It's the place to be and centrally located to almost everything. Packed with people all the time but the crowd is part of its essence

    Historical and beautiful, Rockefeller Center represents NYC at its best. It symbolizes culture, tradition, business & history. Take a walk down the promenade downstairs, offers plenty of cafés & shops

    In 2010, Tad Friend sought to achieve what had once been done by John Updike in 1956: to walk from the Empire State Building to Rockefeller Center without ever setting foot on Fifth or Sixth Avenue Read more

    Come here to do the things that you've always wanted to do as a New Yorker but have always avoided because of tourists - ice skating, Top of the Rock, the tree lighting...the list goes on.

    Love to come here during the changing of the seasons. There is always great things to do and plenty of nice restaurants. Make sure to visit The Top of the Rock to get a closer view of the skyscrapers.

    Between Chinatown, Empire State Building and Times Square, if you haven't gone to Rockefeller Center, then you've never been to NYC. Winter is the skating rink, summer it's a place to dine al fresco

    Go to the rooftop. Best view of NYC. One side you can enjoy a Central Park scenic view, the other side Lower Manhattan and Midtown. Thus including both One WTC Tower and Empire State Building :)

    If you like your bang for your buck, try dining at Rainbow Room-you get the view and food! A bit pricey, but if you think about the actual fare to go up the building, it may be worth it.

    "This is not just a cluster of buildings in New York City: it is a national symbol of distinguished corporate design, far and away the finest grouping of skyscrapers ever built." Paul Goldberger

    One of the most complete and incredible Manhattan views will be seen from the Top of the Rock as the New Yorkers call it: the view from the Rockefeller Center!

    You must go up to the top of the rock during the day, the best view of all the city including empire state and central park! Take all the Rockefeller Center tour

    Rockefeller Center is luxurious and impressive at first sight. On the other hand, The Top of Rock located on the top floor of the building has a 360° view of Manhattan. Indescribable experience.

    Iconic plaza, but can get very packed when the tree is up. Take a trip around the corner and go up to Top of the Rock, they have the best views in the city!

    Rockefeller offers scenic displays throughout the year, from Christmas Tree and Ice Rink in winters to a beautiful cafe in the summer. A lot of artists perform early mornings!

    If you’re going to go for a quadruple axel followed by a triple-toe-loop at the ice skating rink, a word of advice: it’s much easier to pull off while wearing skates.

    It is an Icon! The views from the top are exceptional. The best place to see The Empire State Building, The Chrysler Building, The Freedom Tower, The Statue of Liberty, and Times Square.

    Make sure you visit the Rock view. It is a lot less crowded than the Empire State Building.

    Always beautiful, but especially in the spring or Christmas time! It has to be a place you at least pass through while you're sightseeing!

    It's tricky to get decent photos due to reflections from the anti-suicide Perspex. You can get a small lens between the panels but anything bigger and you'll have to try your luck on the top deck.

    $30 Top of the Rock tickets for breathtaking views of Manhattan. Lines for the ice skating rink during the winter can take 1-2 hours.

    One of the tourist spots of NYC so it gets really crowded especially when everyone trying to take pictures. Definitely check out the Top of the Rock, NBC store and Lego

    This is my favorite spot in the city, hands down. The ice rank is open until spring, so don't fight the crowds at the holidays!

    If you're visiting for the holiday display, go early in the morning (like before 9am) and it will be comparatively calm (for New York). It looks bigger on tv.... But still pretty.

    Best tour with our guide Lindsey I've ever had in the US. She was funny and informative. If you take the tour ask for the tour which she guides.

    Even though it’s really crowded during holidays season, it’s still a must go place, with all the Christmas decoration.

    Both the tour and Top of the Rock are well worth it. In fact Top of the Rock is much better than going up the Empire State Building.

    Great location, close to many major tourist attractions. There are shops and restaurants available within the complex. One of the must-see points.

    The tree is spectacular year after year...just wish I'd gone before the temperature dropped 50 degrees (and with no snow to show for it)!

    Get the VIP tickets for the ice rink/Radio City Christmas Spectacular well before Thanksgiving. They sell out quickly but it's a good deal if you want to skate!

    Go there instead of the Empire State. From the Empire State, you can't see the Empire State. From the top of the Rock, you can. And lines are shorter = Less waiting ;)

    If you go to the top of the rock observatory, go straight to the third floor on it. Unobstructed views are amazing!!

    My favorite place in NYC. Granted it is tourist hell, but the building itself is gorgeous. Go to the top of the Rock for some amazing views..especially at night. Well worth it.
