Today, Rockefeller Center is a fascinating combination of contradictions: at once futuristic and classical, with soaring buildings and underground tunnels, inspired by both hard-headed commercialism and philanthropic idealism. Below street level, the Center's buildings are linked by a pedestrian shopping concourse. This is an oasis of order in the heart of the busiest city in the world, a city within a city, functionally efficient and aesthetically elegant. In 1988, Rockefeller Center was declared a national historic landmark.

The observation deck on the 86th floor is open to the general public, offering an amazing view of the city. On the second floor, you'll find the New York Skyride, a simulated helicopter ride over Manhattan.

This, NYC's original skyline symbol, the Empire State Building, is a limestone classic built in just 410 days during the depths of the Depression. It stands 102 storeys and almost 449m (1472ft) tall and the famous antenna was originally to be a mooring mast for zeppelins, but the Hindenberg disaster put a stop to that plan.

One airship accidentally met up with the building: a B25 crashing into the 79th floor on a foggy day in July 1945, killing 14 people. Taking the ear-popping lift to the 86th or 102nd floor observation desks can entail a bit of waiting around, but it's worth it when you get there.

It is an important part of the Manhattan skyline and one of the fifty tallest buildings in the USA. It was designed by Emery Roth & Sons with the assistance of Walter Gropius and Pietro Belluschi, the Pan Am Building is an example of a Brutalist or International style skyscraper. It is purely commercial in design with large floors, simple massing, and an absence of luxurious detailing inside or out. Although disliked by architecture critics and many New Yorkers, it has been popular with tenants, not least because of its location next to Grand Central Terminal.

Lever House

According to the AIA Guide to New York City, this gorgeous 1952 skyscraper built for the Lever Brothers soap company is "where the glass curtain wall began." Gordon Bunshaft, of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, designed a sheer, slim glass box that rests on the end of a one-story-thick shelf balanced on square chrome columns. The whole building seems to float above the street. Because the tower occupies only half the air space above the lower floors, its side wall reflects a shimmering image of its neighbors.

Seagram Building

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), a leading interpreter of International Style architecture, built this simple, boxlike bronze-and-glass tower in 1958. The austere facade belies its wit: I-beams, used to hold buildings up, are here attached to the surface, representing the idea of support. The Seagram's innovative ground-level plaza, extending out to the sidewalk, has since become a common element in urban skyscraper design. A 52nd Street entrance leads to one of New York's most venerated restaurants, the Four Seasons Grill and Pool Room. Even if you're not dining, peek in to see the Philip Johnson-designed dining room, a modernist masterpiece. Above the Grill Room's bar hangs a frighteningly sharp sculpture installation. COST: Free. OPEN: Tours Tues. at 3.

Central Synagogue

New York's Central Synagogue, one of the nation's leading Reform congregations, traces its roots to 1839. Central today plays an important role in the civic and cultural life of New York, offering worship services, life-long education, and programs which help the greater community. The Sanctuary building, a National and New York City historic landmark, is the oldest Jewish house of worship in continuous use in the city, and a magnificent example of late 19th century American synagogue architecture. Following a devastating fire in August 1998, it has been restored to honor its historic character, while looking to the future. The people of Central are committed to applying the values of our heritage to the important issues of the day.

Tudor City

Tudor City is an apartment complex located on the East Side of Manhattan in New York City. It is borded by E 40th Street to the South, First Avenue to the East, Second Avenue to the West and E 43rd Street to the North. The natural topography of the area is such that east-west streets slope downward from Second Avenue to First Avenue. As a result, Tudor City is at a different elevation at First Avenue and is accessible to vehicular traffic only via Second Avenue. A viaduct connects the two halves of Tudor City bisected by 42nd Street, with staircases providing pedestrian access between 42nd Street and the complex. A separate staircase known as the Sharansky Steps connects Tudor City with Ralph Bunche Park and First Avenue. The area was once home to tenements and slums and bordered a power plant and slaughterhouses along First Avenue on the East River.

Citigroup Center

The Citigroup Center is one of the largest skyscrapers in New York City, United States, located at 601 Lexington Avenue between 53rd Street and 54th Street in midtown Manhattan. The 59-floor, 915-foot (279 m) building is one of the most distinctive and imposing in New York's famous skyline, with a 45 angled top and a genuinely unique stilt-style base. It contains 1.3 million square feet (120,000 m2) of office space, and the 45-degree angle at the top of the building was originally intended to contain solar panels to provide energy (this idea was eventually dropped, however). It was designed by architect Hugh Stubbins Jr. for Citibank, and was completed in 1977. ---- The most striking features of this 1977 design by Hugh Stubbins & Associates are the angled top and the massive "stilts" that support the building. The immense solar-energy collector it was designed to carry was never installed, but the building's unique profile added whimsy to the New York City skyline. At the base of Citicorp Center is a cluster of restaurants and shops. St. Peter's Church (PHONE: 212/935-2200), whose tilted roof is tucked under the Citicorp shadow, is known for its Sunday afternoon jazz vesper service, at 5

The Grand Army Plaza was completed in 1916 and is named after the Grand Army of the Potomac that fought for the Union side during the Civil War.
