"Great Experience" Empire State Building Tip by hundertmorgen

Empire State Building, New York City: 373 reviews and 609 photos

by hundertmorgen

At Fifth Avenue and 34th Street stands New York City's most famous fixture - starring in over 90 movies, a star of gigantic proportions - The Empire State Building.

Once again the world's tallest skyscraper in NYC (it was for 40 years) the symbol of this city was constructed in only two years - 1930 to 31 and the 1,453 foot colossus instantly became a tourist magnet. Even King Kong came to visit!

Entering the spacious Art Deco lobby lathed in 10,000 square feet of marble, we'll head downstairs for our tickets to the observation levels. Lines get pretty long, especially during summer and the holiday season. But it is worth!

Address: 350 5th Avenue
Directions: 1, 2, 3 or 9 (Seventh Avenue Lines), A, C or E (Eighth Avenue Subway) to 34th Street/Penn Station.
Phone: (212) 947-1360
