NY holiday scenes along the way to Rockefeller Center.
Take a tour of Rockefeller Center in New York City – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.
New York's Rockefeller Center is a National Historic Landmark.
The Art Deco building's development was begun in 1930.
Overlooking midtown Manhattan, the plaza spans 22 acres of city blocks.
The center is known for its public art and famous Christmastime displays.
A panoramic view of the city can be seen from the center's Top of the Rock platform.
The plaza houses the GE Building, Radio City Music Hall, and countless other New York landmarks.
NBC News and MSNBC have taken over the skating rink at Rockefeller center for a public viewing of election results. Earlier today I interviewed Robert Dembo, Executive Director of NBC News about the event. If you can't make it there, you'll see it as part of the coverage on both NBC and MSNBC news.
The ice skating rink has been turned into a giant map of the nation, which will be filled in with red and blue mats of the states as results are called by NBC News.

To commemorate the grand opening of the LEGO(R) Store at Rockefeller Center, LEGO Master Builders invited New Yorkers to help construct the Big Apple -- LEGO style -- Tuesday, June 29 to Thursday, July 1.
New York Yankees right fielder Nick Swisher, a self-proclaimed “big kid at heart” who still loves to build, helped to kick off the building extravaganza Tuesday by building and placing the first LEGO brick on the base, and was honored by LEGO Master Builders with a LEGO mosaic of his team’s logo.
An icon of the Manhattan since 1976, the Big Apple -- in LEGO form -- was constructed over three days in the iconic Channel Garden of Rockefeller Center, measured 16 feet tall to the top of the stem, more than 10 feet wide, and weighed two tons.
Families outside of the metro New York area are also encouraged to spend quality time building together. Inspiration and step-by-step instructions for other regional icons and objects, straight from the Model Shop of LEGO Master Builders, can be found by visiting www.LEGOfamilytime****.
