As the home of the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) since construction completed in 1933, no other skyscraper has been more associated with show business. Whether you're passing through its storied halls on the way to see Saturday Night Live, looking at sites like the Empire State Building and Central Park from the open-air observation deck or appreciating the austere Art Deco design as it reflects the lights from the annual Rockefeller Center christmas tree, it’s hard to imagine New York without it.
Whether you’re appreciating one of the city’s best views or visiting some of the great attractions chances are you’ve been awe-struck by these buildings which stand out from the usual towers that crowd the stunning skyline. Unlike most New Yorkers, these icons don’t mind if you stare, so go ahead and look up all you want.
