Radio City Music Hall

1260 Sixth Ave. New York, NY 10020 | West 40s | 212-247-4777

Location Description:

Claiming fame as the largest indoor theater in the world, this stage (a spry 77 years young) still makes pyrotechnics and water effects seem like a breeze. A luxe mix of highbrow and, um, less so-Leonard Cohen one week, Flight of the Conchords the next-keeps the opulent hall fresh and relevant. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., developed it on land leased from Columbia University; now that's a brilliant investment.
