About Rockefeller Center

One of the most iconic places in New York City, Rockefeller Center comes to life during the holidays when the Christmas tree is lit, and the Rockettes appear. The lights on the tree are now powered by 300 solar panels creating an eco-efficient Christmas display. The center itself encompasses 19 commercial buildings and sits on 22 acres. Found between 48th and 51st Street in Midtown Manhattan, Rockefeller Center is almost always bustling with activity. Each year over 125 million people visit the center from all over the world. 

Named as a National Historic Landmark in 1987, visitors today can shop, dine, and tour this iconic center at their leisure. Guided tours are also available. Head up to the observation deck for a panoramic view of New York City. Wander through the garden that has been cultivated inside the center. Since the 9/11 attacks on New York City, large tourist attractions have banned large bags and luggage. Therefore, you will need a place to stow your luggage when visiting Rockefeller Center. Bounce has partnered with businesses throughout NYC and offers short-term luggage storage solutions. Find a Bounce location near you to stow your bags then head over to Rockefeller Center.

  • Grand Central Station: The terminal of Grand Central Station is an absolute must-see. This iconic rail station has been featured in several movies, but there is nothing like seeing it in person. The station does get pretty busy, so don’t be a sitting duck with your baggage, store them at a Bounce location. 

  • Pennsylvania Station: Smaller than Grand Central Station but just as amazing to see in person, Penn Station is a major transit hub that runs beneath Madison Square Garden. Do a little shopping or grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants. Leave your bag with Bounce so you can enjoy all Penn Station has to offer.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
