NBC Studios – Tourist Attractions in New York City
NBC Studios in NYC, New York, USA
NBC Studios are the two television studio facilities belonging to the National Broadcasting Company, with one of them being located inside the GE Building at Rockefeller Center in New York City, and the other located in Burbank, California, just outside of Los Angeles.
A third NBC production facility, the NBC Tower, is located in Chicago, Illinois. NBC Studios was also the name of the network’s production arm (previously NBC Productions), before it was incorporated into the television operations of Universal Pictures, forming the NBC Universal Television Studio, now known as Universal Media Studios.
Located at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (on 49th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues) in Manhattan, the historic GE Building houses the headquarters of the NBC television network, its parent General Electric, and its local owned & operated television station, WNBC (Channel 4).
The first NBC Radio City Studios began operating in the early 1930s, and tours of the studios began in 1933.
