Description 

Rockefeller Center changed the form of mid-town Manhattan. It became one of the most successful urban planning projects in the history of American architecture, and integrated the arts of architecture, city planning, landscape architecture, and sculpture on a scale never achieved before. This vast project provided thousands of jobs during the Depression and restored the image of New York as the premier American city. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, December 23, 1987
