This 22 acre (8ha) land houses a plethora of iconic New York City attractions. Radio City Music Hall ranks highly among visitors, having hosted multiple awards shows such as the Grammys, Emmys and MTV Music Awards and also being a concert venue frequented by today's top performers. The Rockefeller Plaza is the site of the eerie Lunchtime atop a Skyscraper photograph, as well as being the home of Saturday Night Live and popular TV series 30 Rock. The Rockefeller Center also claims to have the best views of the city, a hotly contested competition for sure. At the building's base is the Rink at Rockefeller Center with the golden statue of Prometheus at its head. Beneath is the Concourse, an underground pedestrian mall boasting designer brands and food outlets.

Address: Between 48th and 51st Streets; and 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue, Manhattan
