Nineteen journalists from 10 countries participated in Rockefeller Center’s Art & Observation Tour, which looks into the history and artistry of New York City’s famed Rockefeller Center. Our guide, a Rockefeller Center historian, introduced the group to the buildings, gardens and spaces of Rockefeller Center, highlighting all the great works of art and architecture that comprise it today. The tour ended with a visit to Top of the Rock, for views of Manhattan, Central Park, and beyond from 70 stories up. Especially for FPC journalists, a Rockefeller Center spokesperson also joined us, and provided on-camera interviews, on-the-record quotes, and additional information.
