Construction workers take a break while working on the RCA Building at Rockefeller Center on September 20, 1932.
You may know it as 30 Rock, by its original name, the RCA Building, or as “the Slab,” a reference to its limestone base. At 850 feet and 70 stories, the skyscraper that’s been officially known as the GE Building since 1988 is the thirteenth tallest in New York, and it still serves as the headquarters for NBC, one of the original tenants. This centerpiece of Rockefeller Center was completed in 1933, and its sleek Art Deco form has been one of the gems of the city’s skyline ever since. As imposing as the building is to look at from the plaza below, what’s even more fabulous is the view from the top, where the tri-level Top of the Rock attraction offers a peerless 360-degree vista of New York. It’s not allpretty views, however, there’s a lot of history behind this famous building and more than a few secrets lurk about.
