The Empire State Building is one of the most recognizable landmarks in New York City and one of the most popular tourist attractions. The building was constructed during the great depression and for nearly 40 years was the tallest building in the world. The building was constructed at the same time as the Chrysler Building and the developers of both buildings were competing to see who could build the tallest building, which was won by the builders of the Empire State Building.

Construction of the Empire State Building took only one year and 45 days to complete and was dedicated by President Herbert Hoover from Washington DC. The Empire State Building has an observatory on the 86th and 102nd floors. Originally the top of the building was designed to base a mooring mast for blimps, but due now serves as a base for a tv tower.
