Hidden New York: rooftop gardens

As you may know, NYC has some very beautiful gardens. Some of the most beautiful gardens in New York are hidden though- hundreds of feet above the ground. Rockefeller Center maintains five spectacular roof gardens originally designed by English landscaper Ralph Hancock between 1933 and 1936. The gardens have been closed since 1938, but three can be spied from the Top of the Rock observation deck. And there's a chance you've seen at least one close up: the garden atop the British Empire Building appears in a scene from the 2002 film Spider-Man.
