During the opening title sequence of 30Rock we see various images around Rockerfeller Plaza including NBC studios and the building itself, there is a shot which looks identical to the Royal Coat of Arms of the UK.

Where is this located, I don't remember seeing this when I visited the building a few years ago, also can some one tell me why it's there? Is there some British ancestry?

It's the replica of the Royal Coat of Arms as part of a panel called Industries of the British Empire sculpted by Carl Paul Jennewein at the British Empire Building in Rockefeller Center, 620 5th Avenue.

  • So is this near 30 Rock? I'm not a US or NY native.

    Huh.. I never noticed that, or don't remember. I visited NY during Prince William's wedding so it was quite a few years ago, I do remember being called a M$therF$cker by a random stranger, getting a taxi ride with a guy who had tourettes and a bus journey from JFK to Manhattan where the bus driver winged a Lexus SUV, probably a typical day for most New Yorkers
