New York, NY – Rockefeller Center (HDR)

Rockefeller Center HDR

NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, HDR in Photomatix

It is almost Christmas time and here is a calm photo of Rockefeller Center before the holiday rush.  Soon in the back you will see a BIG X-Mas tree and lots of holiday lights.  It is a great sight to visit when you are in NYC.  One spot I have never visited is the “Top of the Rock” – a wonderful view of NYC from above Rockefeller Center…I should have a shot from here soon (hopefully)!  I will be in NYC sometime in Dec for a holiday visit!

Here is some info from the web on the center:  The Center is a combination of two building complexes: the older and original 14 Art Deco office buildings from the 1930s, and a set of four International-style towers built along the west side of Avenue of the Americas during the 1960s and 1970s (plus the Lehman Brothers Building). (The Time-Life Building, McGraw-Hill and News Corporation/Fox News Channel headquarters are part of these “newer” Rockefeller Center buildings now owned/managed by the major private real estate firm, Rockefeller Group.).  Enjoy!

    Great shot as ever, Pete!

    Remember to take a Gorillapod to the “Top of the Rock” if you want steady shots. Your tripod will be completely useless unless you just happen to enjoy lots of short conversations with security dudes 🙂
