Tourist Attraction
“The best place to take a picture with the biggest christmas tree in the city. It's one of the most iconic places in NYC during the christmas holiday. The ice skating rink is very popular. Go up top of the rock to get amazing views of NYC. If you get hungry, no worries, the ground floor has many places to eat at. Across the street from Saks Fifth Avenue, which offers the most amazing christmas light show. ”

Seafood Restaurant
“A great oyster bar and seafood grill. $1 oysters and clams and 1/2 price drinks every weekday 3 - 7 pm at the bar. ”
  • 7 locals recommend
Nightclub
“Very few places host brunch like Lavo which is walking distance from the building. It is separate from the nightclub, as it is a restaurant, but it is very lively with great music -- perfect for bachelor/bachelorette parties, birthday parties etc.”
  • 28 locals recommend
Night Club
“Yes Michael Jordan owns it!!! Start with the stack of soft, toasted bread soldiers in a pool of hot Gorgonzola fondue. Pristine oysters make a great prelude for a prime dry-aged ribeye or a 2½-pound lobster, grilled, steamed, sautéed, or broiled. Sides, like creamy mac 'n' cheese and a crispy rosemary hash-brown cake, are equally tempting.”
