6. Tours Have Been Held In at Rockefeller Center Since its Founding
‘Saturday Night Live’ head-writer Tina Fey left the show in 2006, but we forgive her, because she gave us ’30 Rock,’ and most importantly, she gave us Kenneth the Page. Pages have been guiding tourists through NBC studios in the GE Building for almost 80 years, and they still wear that outfit. Television host Regis Philbin, who now holds the world record for the most time spent in front of a camera, began his career at 30 Rock as a page. Additionally, at the height of World War II in 1943, Rockefeller Center’s pages were all female. What’s not on the tours anymore: visits to the rooftop garden where there was once (and perhaps still are) koi fish swimming in the ponds.
