Exciting news for nostalgists: the legendary Rainbow Room may be granted landmark status. After the nightclub at 30 Rockefeller Center closed in 2009, owner Tishman Speyer made some renovations to the kitchen space, but many of the most unique details of the dining room — the revolving dance floor, the glass chandeliers, the domed glass ceiling — remain untouched. Now the Post learns that the Landmarks Preservation Commission is going to vote on Tuesday on whether the space should be considered for "interior landmark status," a move that would preserve the details of the space for generations to come.
If the Landmarks Preservation Commission decides to move forward with its plans, the proposal will have to go before a public hearing. There's still no word yet on whether Tishman Speyer has found a new operator for the space.
