Today's Rockefeller Center is a combination of two building complexes: the older Art Deco office buildings from the 1930s, and a set of four International-style towers built along the Avenue of the Americas during the 1960s and 1970s. (The Time-Life Building and the News Corporation/Fox News Channel headquarters are part of the "newer" Rockefeller Center buildings.)
Category: Train stations
Built by the New York Central Railroad (for which it was named) in the heyday of American long-distance passenger trains, it is the largest train station in the world by number of platforms: 44, with 67 tracks along them.
They are on two underground levels, with 41 tracks on the upper level and 26 on the lower.
At that time of construction, the north end of the city was at City Hall.
The New York City Hall building was designed by John McComb Jr. and Joseph François Mangin. Construction of the City Hall building began in 1803 and was completed in 1812.
