Fourteen buildings in all, this Art Deco masterpiece of a complex was the world’s first mixed-use business and retail development. There’s plenty to see and do here that will occupy even the most ADD-riddled visitor for hours. There’s a sunken roller/ice skate rink, a backdrop of countless New York movies; there are high-end shops (especially along Fifth Avenue) and there is the Top of the Rock, an observation platform 70 stories from the ground on the top of the 1933 GE building. Many will testify that because of the building’s position smack in the center of Midtown, the view from here is much better than from the Empire State Building. There are tours of Rockefeller Center every two hours between 11AM and 5PM.
