Hola mis queridos amigos, ¿pensando en las vacaciones ? Nueva York es siempre una maravillosa opción. ¿Queréis ver la ciudad desde la "cima del Rockefeller"?
¡Me encanta Nueva York!
AT THE TOP OF THE ROCK
NEW YORK CITY
If you want to get a great view of the New York Skyline, you should go to the "Top of the Rock". The Rock in this case is an abbreviation of the "Rockefeller Center". It opened in 1933, during the Great Depression and when it did, John D Rockefeller followed the example of another New York skyscraper of that era, the Empire State Building.
The Top of the Rock closed in 1986, but reopened in 2005 and it still offers spectacular views.
You can enjoy the view both during the day and at night, but if you go at night, you might want to consider the amazing Rainbow Room which is an incredible ballroom where you must go very well dressed!!! You don't need to be formal but you have to look good! This ballroom closed in 2008 and it reopened late 2014. It's one of those exquisite ...65 floors up with views of the city!
The Rockefeller Center in Midtown Manhattan is world-famous. This large cultural complex was built by one of the United States' richest dynasties, the Rockefellers, and here you can find Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Plaza.
Less well known, perhaps, is the Art Deco skyscraper at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (where the Rockefeller family still have offices). It is well worth visiting, not least because the observation deck at the top, the "Top of the Rock" , offers spectacular views of the New York skyline.
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
When it first opened in 1933 it was given the name the RCA Building, in honour of its most important tenant, the Radio Corporation of America. RCA was in fact part of a larger corportarion, General Electric, and this could explain why the name changed to the "GE Building" in the 1980s.
This year its name will change once again when it becomes the "Comcast Building". But many people just call it "30 Rock", which was also the title of a popular TV series that was set there. And the best part of "the Rock" is the "Top of the Rock!"
-IT IS WELL WORTH VISITING: vale la pena visitarlo.
-BALLROOM: salón de baile.
-TO LOOK GOOD: ir bien vestido.
-65 FLOORS UP: en el piso 65.
HAVE A NICE DAY MY FRIENDS!!!
SEE YOU IN NEW YORK!!!
