Radio City Music Hall
THEATRE DISTRICT. Host to some of the top performers of all time, Radio City Music Hall was built in 1932 with the slogan, “The Showplace of the Nation.” Radio City was the brainchild of theatrical impresario “Roxy” Rothafel. Saved from demolition in the 1970s, the building was given landmark status in 1978. Walking tours give visitors the chance to see the gold-leaf ceilings, 30-foot chandeliers, decorative carpeting and the backstage area with a historic costume shop. The highlight of the tour is a meeting with a Rockette, one of the world-renowned high-stepping dancers who have graced the stage since its inception.
