There’s a lot to do here. The ‘Top of the Rock’ observation deck on the 70th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza offers sweeping 360-degree views of New York City. Also in ‘30 Rock‘ are the NBC Studios where shows like Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Meredith Vieira Show and the Today show are filmed. Next door is iconic Radio City Music Hall.
Rockefeller Plaza is where the famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is lit every year and the steps that lead down from here end up at the Sunken Plaza, which houses and ice-skating rink during winter months. Also be sure to check out the large Atlas statue the entrance to the International Building at 630 Fifth Ave.
