Rockefeller Center

From events and attractions to holiday windows and restaurants serving festive fare, here is a guide to things to experience in NYC this season.

New York's outdoor rinks feature picturesque views of Central Park, the skyline and the Rockefeller Center tree.

The towering statue of Prometheus can be seen from both the indoor café and outdoor garden of Rock Center Café, a favorite of the international crowd.

Believe it or not, sometimes it’s easy to forget how expansive and awe-inspiring the New York City cityscape is until you take an all-encompassing gander from a bird’s-eye view. A few years ago—when I was still fairly new to the city—a college friend and I visited Top of the Rock® Observation Deck at Rockefeller Center®.

There are several worthwhile winter activities in New York City, and a skate around the famous ice rink at Rockefeller Center is definitely one that should top your list. The rink, which sits at the bottom of the sunken plaza at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, is a great place for both seasoned skaters and newbies to show off their skills.

I’ve been to a few video game events and I have to say they are a lot of fun. It’s the perfect opportunity to test your skills against a group of friends or other gamers. Plus, onlookers always cheer you on. This Thursday, August 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center, the construction toy company K’NEX will celebrate the addition of Mario Kart™ Wii Building Sets (for ages 6 and up) with in-store events for fans.
