On my one and only trip to NYC, this was my request. I just had to stop here and stare in the middle of February with the temperature hovering at about 4 degrees.

There's a lot of things going on in and around Rockefeller. I think the most conjured up thought would be the ice skating rink and big christmas tree (winter months only, duh). The main draw is probably all the shops (the Lego one is awesome since they have a replica Rockefeller Center and various other Lego statues inside) and "Top of the Rock" where you can go to top of the building to get a great view of NYC. While not as, historically speaking, grand as the Empire State building the line is MUCH shorter. You can purchase tickets online or on th...
