Empire State Building, New York City: 374 reviews and 610 photos
It was one of the last skyscrapers built before the Great Depression hit the real estate market. Its height of 381 meter (1253 ft) wouldn't be topped until 1972, when the twin World Trade Towers eclipsed the Empire State Building.
It is a 102-story Art Deco skyscraper in New York, NY on the intersection of 5th Ave and W 34th Street. Its name is derived from the nickname for the state of New York. It stood as the world's tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until the construction of the World Trade Center North Tower topped out on December 23, 1970. It is now once again the tallest building in New York, after the destruction of the World Trade Center in the September 11, 2001 attacks.
You can visit the Empire State Building's observatory on the 86th floor from where you have a magnificent view over the city of New York. The Empire State Building is situated south of Midtown, away from the skyscraper clusters in midtown and in the financial district downtown, so this is one of the few places in Manhattan where you have an open 360 degrees view.
