In the mood for something majestic to counter (or, perhaps, celebrate) the back-to-school blues? Well perk up — majestic is one thing New York has in spades! And perhaps one of the most elaborate, majestic, and awe-inspiring things New York has to offer is (of course) Dwayne Johnson.
Err, wait, no. I mean the Rock the building. As in Rockefeller Center. My bad.
Anyway, if you’re looking for majesty not just in height, but in style and beauty, come check it out, take a tour, and see how that helps your mood.
The Rock, located 1.5 miles off the shore of San Francisco Bay, is… OK, there I go again. Not that Rock. The one I’m talking about is located at 30 Rockefeller Center, was built during the 1930s. Funded by the famous John D. Rockefeller, who conceived of it on the eve of the Great Depression, the building was designed to be the centerpiece of a center of commerce and communal gathering. One which would help New Yorkers to enjoy better lives and better livelihood. Even with the onset of the Depression itself, Rockefeller continued to build the structure, and the building — especially its observation deck — was his gift to New York City.
While you’re there, you might consider taking one of the tours offered at this destination: Top of the Rock tours. I’m told that they very rarely lead their visitors to either Mr. Johnson’s residence or the San Francisco Bay. They do, however, include an expert historian guiding you through over 80 years of the building’s history, as well as the great works of art and architecture of which it is composed today. Tours start at 10am every morning, seven days a week, and run every half hour (excluding 6pm and 6:30pm).
Accept no substitutes! Rockefeller Center in New York City is the place to be post-labor day. And what way to cruise across the (correct) bay in comfort worthy of a Rockefeller than on board the Seastreak. We can offer you food, drink, and other amenities that will have you truly prepped for your tour.
Sea you Soon!
