A National Historic Landmark, Rockefeller Center stretches over a vast area covering a massive 22 acres (8.90 hectares). At the center, engage in a plethora of activities that includes shopping at designer stores, dining at lavish restaurants and bars, attending various concerts and art shows, and in winter trying your skating skills at the Lower Plaza that transforms into the famous ice-rink. Visitors can take a tour of Radio City Music Hall on 50th Street at Sixth Avenue and the GE Building at 30 Rockefeller Plaza houses NBC, which offers guided tours of its premises. The stunning cityscape from the Top Of The Rock observation deck steals most of the visiting crowd, but come December the spectacularly lit Christmas tree is where the magic lies.

The MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) is considered by enthusiasts to be one of the best modern art museums in the world, and with a major renovation completed in 2004 by Yoshio Taniguchi, it has only become better.

The galleries burst with intriguing exhibits including paintings, drawings, prints, illustrations and photographs. Beloved to the museum are certain classics such as Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe and Pablo Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. Should your appetite for art mirror your appetite for food, there is also a restaurant onsite and for collectibles and more, there's the museum's shop.
