  • It's an important icon of the city. The skating rink was still enabled. Very good!! Pin. A little expensive to climb

  • Nowhere for friends or relatives to sit inside while waiting for others in their party to visit the top of the rock. Not great for elderly or infirm.  more »

  • In the wintertime, Rockefeller center is magical for you and the family. The giant Christmas tree is absolutely stunning. The flags bring the world to our forefront. The ice skating rink is always filled with people having lots of fun. Even though it's winter , you don't feel the cold because they're so many people walking around admiring the beauty, shopping, eating, and bringing in one of the greatest sights in New York City and possibly the world. Enjoy the shops underground including the coffee shops. If you get a chance have a pretzel or a hot dog from a stand on the street. I caution everyone, be prepared to spend a lot of money, but it's Christmas time and the time to give joy. Rockefeller Center is exciting, glamorous and picturesque. At this time of the year, who could ask for anything more. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. God-bless you. Now, make sure you come visit this spring and summer.
  • Great place to go. Each time it changes its design for the whole year. For Christmas, it invites the giant Christmas tree in the US with all Christmas decorations. Spring, another design with beautiful flowers and plants. Each season has its own design. All flags from all over the world are standing there.
