NBC Studio Tour
||New York City|

NBC Studios is located in the famous 30 Rock building in Rockefeller Plaza. The tour itself is not worth the money unless you're a die hard fan. It's sort of interesting to stand inside each studio and see the incredible amount of equipment used to shoot the talk shows, and to feel the dry refrigeration that is used instead of AC to cool the rooms to protect the equipment- man it would be cold to work here! The slide show they show of all the shows they've made amazes you when you see how many of your favorite old TV shows from the eighties were made by them. There is a memorial glass display area set up for overseas correspondents who have died while serving the studio. During the tour there is a general feeling that you're a pain in the butt and should move out of the way of all the important people that might need to get by. Also the pages that lead the tour can be quite condescending. You really feel like an annoying tourist.
