The GE Building is the one that grabs attention in the entire Rockefeller Center complex. The building is very Gothic and art deco in style. This building also offers a backdrop to St. Bartholomew's church. The GE building was originally called the RCA building and 30 Rockefeller Center. The building has an observatory on the topmost floor and is called 'Top of the Rocks'.
The Top of the Rock observation deck adds to the many facets of the Rockefeller Center's international appeal, which already include a seasonal ice skating rink, NBC Studios and the famous Christmas tree. The Top of the Rock observation deck sits serenely on the 70th floor of Rockefeller Center. With incredible views of Central Park, Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge, and northern Manhattan, you'll be offered a more peaceful look at the bustling city below. Wile away the hours soaking in a gorgeous sunset or experiencing the interactive, multimedia exhibits. The innovative ticket reservation system claims to guarantee a comfortable atmosphere that is never overcrowded.

Your guide on this tour will be an official NBC Page, a position once held by performers as notable as Ted Koppel, Regis Philbin and Michael Eisne, and made famous by its pivotal role on Tina Fey's hit sitcom 30 Rock (named, of course, for the very building in which this tour takes place). Tickets go fast and are sold on a first-come-first-served basis, so arrive early or book in advance via NBC's online store. Reservation are recommended.

Home to the legendary dance company The Rockettes, Radio City Music Hall is one of the most spectacular and famous performance venues in the United States.

Anybody who is anybody has performed here - New York legends Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Sammy Davis, Jr. are just a few that spring to mind - and to this day, the stage remains a showcase for entertainment royalty.
