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.
