  • Police, grounds people, even local business employees are always willing to help you find your way if your in need of an address. Sure the tourist crowds can get hectic, especially during the holiday season.. but it's NYC, that's inevitable.. quick Tip for Holiday travelers.. if you want to see the Christmas tree without any crowds.. come EARLY! Nearby parking garages are open and there are minimal crowds.. you can walk the entire plaza, take all the pics you want and get out of there before the tourist crowd begins to pour in...
  • It's an iconic place, full of people all the time. We can't miss this elegant center surrounded of many great stores, like Michel kors , banana Republic , Lego and flowers. There is a skating ring very famous. It worth take a time for visiting.
  • I work here and it is great having the convenience of everything in one place. Post office, stores, places to eat, good coffee (at Blue Bottle in the concourse), even a barbershop. The only downsize is that the place is always swarming with tourist, ugh, especially during Christmas time when the tree is up.
  • Great spot, great shopping, and amazing at Christmas with its famous tree and ice skating rink. And of course highly recommended views!! (Better than empire state views in my opinion.)
  • Rockefeller Center is a must for any visitor information NYC. In the Concourse you will find different scale shops where you can buy memorabilia, food, coffee, presents, anything! The building itself it's amazing, with a great design and incredible art all over. (If you can go to Top of the Rock, the views are marvelous!) Definitely a must see.
