Radio City Music Hall is located in Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan. It was built by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. between 1929 and 1932, with hopes that a great entertainment venue could revive the city, especially after the 1929 market crash. Its name came from the one of the building's first tenants, the Radio Corporation of America.
At the time it was opened to the public in December of 1932, the 5933 seat theater was the largest indoor theater in the world. It is now known as the Showplace of the Nation, and has since become one of the most well known venues in the world. In addition to hosting many big name entertainers, it is also home to the dance team The Rockettes and the yearly Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
