Rockefeller Centre is a large complex consisting of 19 commercial buildings covering 22 acres (89,000 m2) between 48th and 51st Streets, facing Fifth Avenue, in New York City. Commissioned by the Rockefeller family, it is located in the centre of Midtown Manhattan. The 14 original Art Deco buildings span the area between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, split by a large sunken square and a private street called Rockefeller Plaza. Five International Style buildings, built later, are located on the west side of Sixth Avenue and at the head of Rockefeller Plaza. In the winter months there is an ice skating rink in the plaza, and the all famous New York Christmas Tree! You are best to book in advance for a visit to the top observatory, a meal in the restaurant or drink in the bar is highly recommended.
