I’m a sucker for cathedrals and observation decks. After visiting St. Patrick’s across the street, a must-visit NYC attraction is “30 Rock” and it’s best-in-the-city observation deck.
Since the rink was installed on Christmas day 1936, visitors have been flocking to Rockefeller Center to skate under the iconic Christmas tree. An iconic New York holiday landmark, the rink only allows 150 skaters at a time – so it’s best to go on a weekday or at night.
I don’t ice skate, so let’s head up the building via the famous Rainbow Room sign.
The reason I love this observation deck is that it offers the best view of the Empire State building. Plus, you’re able to see Central Park really well and you can see One World Trade.
