The Empire State Building
Neighborhood: Herald Square
Address: 350 5th Ave. W34 and 5th
Perhaps the most famous feature of the New York City skyline is the Empire State Building in Midtown Manhattan. This landmark was built during the Depression because of a rivalry between General Motors and Chrysler to see which would build the tallest building.
The interior of the building is Art Deco in style and currently leases office space at a premium. Tourists flock to the building to enjoy the 86th floor observation platform where one can easily take panorama photographs of the entire New York Metro Area on a clear day. The Empire State Building has 102 floors. Those above the observation platform feature some offices and then the tower, which is more of an ornamental crown to the splendid architectural achievement.
As this is such an iconic landmark, there is no way a brief description can do it justice. For more information and RP inspiration, please see the official website: Empire State Building official Website
