Authentic Guide to New York City
The centerpiece of the view from Rockefeller Center's Rainbow Room, the Empire State Building is a must-see on the iconic New York trail, says writer Daisann McLane in "Authentic New York" in the April issue of National Geographic Traveler. New Yorker James Sanders considers this vantage the best view of the 102-story art deco masterpiece. "You don't have to go to the top," says Sanders, an architect, author, and Emmy-winning filmmaker who co-wrote with Ric Burns a 17.5-hour PBS documentary on New York. It "is great seen from a distance."
