The famous Rainbow Room can be found here. Auction house Christies is located in the complex. Here you will also find the NBC Experience Tour, the Radio City Stage Door Tour, and the Rockefeller Center Tour. This is also home to Conan O’Brien, Saturday Night Live, and The Today Show. Here you will find the Radio City Music Hall, home to the world-famous Rockettes.
One of the most famous things you will find here is the golden statue of Prometheus designed by Paul Manship in 1934. In the summer time, umbrellas come out and outdoor dining abounds. In the wintertime, it becomes an ice skating rink. Many TV shows and movies have had scenes shot here. And it becomes a shot in many NYC TV shows in the wintertime. You can go to for more information.

In the spring and summer, the sunken plaza is made into an outdoor cafe with tables and umbrellas, but my favorite time of year to be there is in the winter. That's when the plaza becomes an ice-skating rink, and particularly around Christmas, the entire area is transformed. Most of the time the rink is too crowded to even think about skating, and it's also fairly expensive. Wollman Rink in Central Park is much better for that. But I just like to sit back and look at everything, watch the people. I enjoy getting a mocha from Starbucks and a bagel and sitting at a table inside to watch the ice skaters through the windows. It's less crowded early in the morning, and you can usually watch a private session of skating lessons.
Nearby are also NBC studios, St. Patrick's Cathedral and a number of popular sights and shopping destinations. If you're a tourist, Rockefeller Center is a great way to start your day, and even if you live in New York, it's not a bad way to spend some time in a tourist area without feeling like one.
