The United States of America, New York, Top of the Rock, September 30, 2013
I had a business trip to San Francisco and Costa Rica in the second half of September, and I decided to spend 3 days in New York on my way back. This is a classic view of Manhattan at sunset taken from the Top of the Rock - observation deck of GE Building in Rockefeller Center.
GE Building was completed in 1933 as part of the Rockefeller Center. The noted Art Deco architect Raymond Hood led a team of Rockefeller architects. It was named the RCA Building for its main tenant, the Radio Corporation of America, formed in 1919 by General Electric. It was the first building constructed with the elevators grouped in the central core. During construction, photographer Charles Clyde Ebbets took the famous photograph Lunch atop a Skyscraper
on the 69th floor. In 1988 the building was renamed into GE Building.
