Sept. 4 2016: Rockefeller Center Decoration

Jonathan L ·
Many people walk up and down 5th Ave. past Rockefeller Center. They look in the windows. They at the garden and at the Prometheus statue.

Amazing pictures of an incredible place. We were there in October right after the set up the rink. It was so cool to see it up and running. Still wished we had been able to go back in December to see if all decked out for Christmas. It was still beautiful in fall. Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures.

Everywhere I go I look up to see the real architecture of a building. But why is The Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom displayed on 5th Avenue ?

Several of the original 14 Rockefeller Center buildings, mainly the ones facing Fifth Avenue, were to be the 'international buildings,' each named for a European country, and each intended to attract commercial and government tenants from that country, and decorated with matching art. The British Empire Building is across a promenade called Channel Gardens from La Maison Francaise; the next building up is the Palazzo d'Italia. The next two, International Building and International Building...

Thanks Paul - very interesting. Wouldn't it be wonderful if those magnificent buildings had a brief description of their history on the outside. Like the American Eagle with the Stars and Stripes carved into the sand stone facia in Church St in Liverpool !
