MIDTOWN WEST. Just a few steps away from the famed Rockefeller Center, a narrow promenade separates the British Empire Building and the Maison Française. The promenade, cleverly dubbed the Channel Gardens, is noteworthy for its six pools surrounded by a beautiful assortment of flowers. This is a great place to catch your breath, people watch or just take in a great view. At Christmas when the tree in Rockefeller Plaza is lit, the view of Fifth Avenue via the Channel Gardens is one of the most picturesque you can imagine.
