Rockefeller Center & Plaza
About the plaza: New York City is home to many of the world’s major music, television and film productions, and a good number of stars call NY home. Many tourists visit hoping for a brief street-side encounter with their favorite celeb, but this may not be the most effective way of touching the hem of stardom. Several of the most popular shows are taped at NBC Studios, including “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “The Rosie O’Donnell Show.” The popular “Today” show with hosts Katie Couric and Matt Lauer, broadcasts live weekdays from 7am to 9am from its glass-walled studio on the corner of 49th Street and Rockefeller Plaza.
Directions: 45 Rockefeller Plaza is located between East 49th and East 50th Streets, just west of Fifth Avenue. You may also enter the building at 630 Fifth Avenue, between East 49th and East 50th Streets.
How to get there: By subway, take the 6 train to 50th Street, exit at the rear of the station and walk 3 blocks west to Fifth Avenue. You can also take the B, D, F or Q trains to the 47th-50th Street/Rockefeller Center station and walk one block east on 49th or 50th Street to Rockefeller Plaza.
