Rockefeller Center

skating at the plaza [map of Rockefeller Center] The area picked out in pink is Radio City Music Hall (radiocity.com) (p. 75, 137-140). The area picked out in blue is the skating rink (p. 128-134). Rockefeller Center includes a friendly, fountained public "promenade" leading to the skating rink (this area is called the Plaza). There are shops and businesses all around, including NBC studios (nbc.com). There is a huge Christmas tree put up by the rink every winter.

The NBC building lobby has a free Rockefeller Center walking tour brochure, which is where I got this map. The brochure also includes this photo of the skating rink, from 1962: [1962 skaters from high up]
