Photo by myself outside Rockefeller Center, around 5th Avenue and 50th Street.
The architecture of this landmark is considered Art Deco, but its austerity resembles the huge Fascist building in Italy in the late 1920's. Dramatic night lighting makes Rockefeller Center an enduring tourist attraction.
The above statue shows Atlas, a character from Greek mythology, whose task it was to hold up the world.
