“- Well, beats taking the subway.”

Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) to Mary-Jane (Kirsten Dunst)

Before landing on these roofs, the Spider-Man takes the chosen one from his heart to the end of his canvas and even acrobatically passes close to the beautiful St Patrick’s Cathedral, located just across the avenue.

Their exchange is short but intense. For a moment, Spider-Man tells Mary-Jane that she knows who he is. But soon, the superhero replies that he is Spider-Man and flies off to other adventures, leaving Mary-Jane at the top of Rockefeller Roof Gardens normally closed to the public.

That’s how many months it took the costume designer and his team to design the Spider-Man costume.

Rockefeller Center

Top of the Rock, Rockefeller Roof Gardens, GE Building, the Rockefeller Center is full of surprises.

Comprising nineteen buildings, the Rockefeller Center was erected by the Rockefeller family in the mid-1930s.

One can admire an incredible panorama from the Top of the Rock, go shopping in the numerous boutiques or admire the gigantic fir tree during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Some of its treasures are hidden and forbidden to the public such as the five gardens at the top of some buildings, others are clearly visible such as the statue of Atlas in front of St. Patrick’s Cathedral on 5th Avenue.

The Rockefeller Center is much more than a building complex, it is a true “city within the city” as described by the mayor of New York in 1939, Fiorello H. LaGuardia.

And of course, pop culture has taken over the place…
