无线电城音乐厅是洛克斐勒中心的一部分建筑,这个座落在曼哈顿中城区的中心占地约12英亩,是由商业钜子约翰.洛克斐勒二世 (John D. Rockefeller Jr.) 1929年至1940年兴建的大楼。这块地是他向哥伦比亚大学承租来的。洛克斐勒最初计画在这里兴建一栋歌剧院,但是在1929年的股票市场大崩盘后,他改变了心意。这栋建筑物的第一批承租人之一是美国无线电公司 (Radio Corporation of AmericaRCA) ,所以这栋大楼才会叫做「无线电城」以及「无线电城音乐厅」。下一次你有机会去纽约,可以到里头看场表演,或者看看这栋有名的无线电城音乐厅也不错。


The Radio City Music Hall is part of Rockefeller Center, a 12-acre complex in midtown Manhattan developed between 1929 and 1940 by business tycoon John D. Rockefeller Jr. He leased the land from Columbia University. Rockefeller initially planned an opera house on the site, but changed his mind after the stock market crash of 1929. One of the complex's first tenants was the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), hence the names "Radio City" and "Radio City Music Hall." If you're ever in New York, take in a show or take a peek into the famous Radio City Music Hall.
