...a city within a city.

Rockefeller Center is an art deco marvel consisting of 19 commercial buildings covering 11 acres in midtown Manhattan from 49th to 52nd Streets, Fifth to Seventh Avenues.
Named after the multi-millionaire, John D. Rockefeller, who leased the space from Columbia University in 1928.
Originally occupied by tenements and theaters, Rockefeller planned to revitalize the area with 3 huge office buildings and a new Metropolitan Opera House.
The stock market crash of 1929 helped scrap the original plans but Rockefeller still wanted a commercial district.
Hiring 3 architecture firms and a consulting firm, ground was broken on the Rockefeller Center we see today in late 1929.
