Radio City Music Hall

If I ever make my way to the Big Apple this is one venue where I want to watch a show at. Radio City Music Hall is an entertainment venue located in New York City’s Rockefeller Center. Rockefeller Center was developed between 1929 and 1940 by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. (on land leased from Columbia University). Radio City Music Hall was designed by architect Edward Durell Stone and interior designer Donald Deskey in the Art Deco style.

It’s nicknamed the “Showplace of the Nation” For a time it was the leading tourist destination in the city. Radio City Hall’s interior was declared a New York City landmark in 1978. Radio City has 5,931 seats for spectators and additional seating can be placed on the pit elevator during events that do not require that space bringing the seating capacity to over 6,000. It became the largest movie theater in the world at the time of its opening. In 2007 Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds held a concert here (a show I wish I could attend). This photo of Radio City Music Hall has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 25th of January 2012.
