Midtown West Area
If you’re in Midtown West and looking for something fun to do, head over to Rockefeller Center for what’s sure to be a good time, any day of the week. Rockefeller Center always has a lively crowd of New Yorkers and tourists alike, gathering together and snapping pictures of this true NYC spot. In the winter you can skate on the huge, beautiful skating rink and take in the biggest christmas tree in New York, which stays lit up, sparkling and festive during the holiday season, drawing crowds to the traditional annual tree-lighting ceremony. It’s situated between 47th and 52nd Streets, and between 5th and 7th Avenue. Rockefeller Center is scattered with cool art deco structures and other sculptures, making a stroll around quite the feast for your eyes. There are tons of great spots to stop and grab a bite, including great little gourmet delis, and the famous Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery. During the summer there are great events, performances and art installations in the middle of the square. You can check out the Lego store with millions of lego pieces in the walls and cool lego sculptures, or even pop into NBC Studios and take a tour, or watch a taping of the Today Show.
