The Rockefeller Centre
W 48th - 51st Streets, between 5th and 6th Avenues, New York City
The Rockefeller Centre, constructed between 1932 and 1940, was conceived by John D Rockefeller Jr as the first large-scale, privately-funded, mixed-use urban renewal project in the United States.
The centrepiece of the multi-building complex is the Raymond Hood -designed 70-storey RCA Building which, in common with many of the buildings and public spaces throughout the Centre, is liberally adorned with the work of some of the leading US sculptors of the Deco era.
You can see more pictures and find out more (but not much more) by visiting the Rockefeller Centre pages on the rather patronising official New York City tourism website.
The images on this page were taken by Art Deco World in April 2000.
