Rockefeller Center

With its skating rink already open and the much-anticipated tree lighting next week, nothing says holidays in NYC better than Rockefeller Center.

Rockefeller Center opened in 1933 and was the culmination of John D. Rockefeller's vision for a "city within a city" -- a hub for remarkable art, style, and entertainment. It is comprised of 19 commercial buildings covering 22 acres, with "30 Rock" -- a 70-story art-deco masterpiece -- as its crown jewel. 30 Rock is home to the Rainbow Room, NBC Studios, and the Top of the Rock observation deck. The complex was built during the Great Depression and employed over 40,000 workers.

Rockefeller Center is among the last major building projects in the United States to incorporate a program of integrated public art. Of the 12 individual sculptures, Paul Manship's Prometheus is the most prominent.
