Built by John D. Rockefeller Jr., Rockefeller Centre provided jobs for 225,000 during the depression, and comprised of 14 buildings by 1940. By 1973, there were 19 buildings on site. Radio City Music Hall was completed by 1932.

If you don't have time to explore the complex, at least take a look at the Promenade, othewise known as the Channel Gardens and let it lead you down to the Lower Plaza and world-famous skating rink watched over by Prometheus. There are many shops and a food court here as well.
