Photographer's Note

Here we were at Rockefeller Center near the GE Building. The trees were covered with lights and by this point ofview it look like stars and the building is a path to them.

Rockefeller Center is a complex of 19 commercial buildings covering 22 acres (89,000 m2) between 48th and 51st streets in New York City. Built by the Rockefeller family, it is located in the center of Midtown Manhattan, spanning the area between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987.

30 Rockefeller Center is an American Art Deco skyscraper that forms the centerpiece of Rockefeller Center. It has been known as the GE Building since 1988, due to the large exterior signage of its former corporate owner General Electric (GE). The exterior signage is scheduled to be changed to reflect the building's new corporate owner, Comcast, in 2015. Because of the change of signage, it is also known by some as the Comcast Building. It was previously the RCA Building from 1933 to 1988. Nicknames include The Slab and 30 Rock.

It is most famous for housing the NBC television network headquarters. At 850 feet (260 m) high, the 70-story building is the 14th tallest in New York City and the 39th tallest in the United States.
