La Maison Française

La Maison Française
La Maison Française, 610 Fifth Avenue.

Part of the famous Rockefeller Center, two 1930s building were namded La Maison Française and the British Empire Building. Separating the two buildings is a little garden that was later renamed the Channel Gardens, just like the English Channel separates Britain and France.

This web site offers a very interesting visual and audio explanation about the symbolism of La Maison Française.
