Built by the Rockefeller family, the resort is located in Midtown Manhattan, spanning the area between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue in Manhattan, New York. This area has some of the most luxurious shopping in New York. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in March 1987. The Rockefeller Center is composed of many shops and theaters with great reputation, as the Radio City Music Hall. The resort is a tourist destination because of the many sets of the Rockefeller Plaza, the view offered by the GE Building observatory, and in addition to the many seasonal activities such as ice skating rink or the big fir tree, which each year were together thousands of people. The history of Rockefeller Center began in late 1920, when the oil magnate John D. Rockefeller (1839-1937) decided to build a complex of buildings in Midtown Manhattan neighborhood. At that time, lived on Calle 54, and wanted to push the district by developing new economic activities. Rockefeller decided to invest part of his fortune in real estate projects, as it had in the financing of the construction of the Riverside Church in Morningside Heights. Moreover, their interests are joined with the Metropolitan Opera Company, which then tried to leave the Garment District since early 1920: it was decided that the Rockefeller Center include an opera house and ancillary buildings.
