The Ciprianis are on an all-out blitz to get the Landmarks Preservation Commission to consider bestowing its magic touch on the famed Rainbow Room in 30 Rockefeller Center, and the Observer's Eliot Brown explains why: "The uncommon move is a not-so-subtle jab at the Rainbow Room’s landlord, Tishman Speyer, the powerful and politically connected real estate firm led by Jerry and Rob Speyer. As interior landmark designation would restrict changes or alterations to the restaurant and banquet hall, it would likely weaken the Speyers’ hand in future lease negotiations with Cipriani or any other potential tenant."
