Interesting Facts About Rockefeller Center

  • Rockefeller Center is a large complex consisting of 19 high-rise commercial buildings located in Midtown Manhattan, NYC.
  • Rockefeller Center is spread over a whopping 89,000 square meters (22 acres) bounded by Fifth and Sixth avenues and from 48th Street to 51st Street.
  • Rockefeller Center was named after John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
  • It was commissioned by the Rockefeller family.
  • It was the largest private building project ever undertaken in modern times. Construction of the 14 buildings in the Art Deco style began on May 17, 1930, and the buildings were completed and opened in 1939.
  • Unlike most other Art Deco towers built during the 1930s, the Comcast Building was constructed as a slab with a flat roof and since 1933 has been home of the Center’s observation deck, the Top of the Rock. It is one of the most popular Manhattan landmarks.
  • Rockefeller Center hosts the famous annual Christmas tree, which ranges in size from 18 to 30 meters (60 to 100 feet) tall from year to year and is covered with over 50,000 LED lights. The Swarovski-crystal star that tops the tree first appeared in 2004 and is nearly 3 meters (10 feet) in diameter. The tree is positioned in front of the central feature of Rockefeller Center.
  • Ice skating at Rockefeller Center is the quintessential New York City holiday activity. The rink is open from mid-October to mid-March, but there’s nothing like skating beneath the historic Rockfeller Center Christmas tree in December. 
  • More than half a million visitors flock to the Rockefeller Center ice skating rink each year, both to skate and to be spectators.
  • Prometheus is said to be the best-known sculpture in Rockefeller Center and the most photographed monumental sculpture in all of NYC.
