Today we arrive in the Big Apple and meet our ClassTrip.com Tour Director who will remain with us throughout the duration of our trip. We visit Rockefeller Center, a Great Depression era creation which in large part makes mid-town Manhattan what it is today. Rockefeller Center is a unique synthesis of urban planning, architecture, landscaping and sculpture commissioned by the Rockefeller family and including Radio City Music Hall and the famous skyscraper at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. While here we enjoy a backstage tour of Radio City Music Hall, a storied entertainment venue known as the “Showplace of the Nation” which is the headquarters for the Rockettes. We head to Fifth Avenue, where there is an opportunity to explore the street’s world-renowned shopping. We visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue. This neo-gothic cathedral was built in the mid to late 19th century and is one of the most well-known symbols of American Catholicism. We enjoy dinner together in New York City and visit the Empire State Building Observatory, from which we see the city from one of its highest viewing points.
