Rockefeller Center

Covering 22 acres in Midtown Manhattan, Rockefeller Center is a “city within a city,” a National Historic Landmark comprising 19 landmark buildings between 48th and 51st streets. Built by John D. Rockefeller Jr. during the height of the Great Depression, it opened in May 1933 with an extraordinary collection of public art. Highlights include the 15-foot cast bronze statue of Atlas facing Fifth Avenue and the gilded bronze statue of Prometheus, which presides over the Center’s popular ice skating rink.
