Top of the Rock

During our recent New York City Tour, we visited Top of the Rock, an observation deck located on the top of what is called the GE Building, an Art Deco skyscraper that forms the centerpiece of Rockefeller Center in Midtown Manhattan. Known as the RCA Building until 1988, it is most famous for housing the NBC television network headquarters. At 850 feet high, the 70-story building is the 13th tallest in New York City and the 39th tallest in the United States. Some of the building’s nicknames include The Slab and 30 Rock. The latter is derived from its address at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

The building is currently undergoing an extensive interior renovation, which will also result in it being renamed the Comcast Building, complete with new Comcast signage at street level and atop the building, including the display of the iconic NBC Peacock logo on the building’s exterior for the first time.
