    THEEmpire State Building it is not just a New York symbol, but also one of the most famous skyscrapers on the planet. Its name comes from New York state's nickname, the Empire State.

    Fu built between 1929 and 1931, during the Great Depression. Its construction was completed in just 410 days. For its realization, 3400 men worked continuously.

    With a height of 381 meters high (443,5 meters if you consider the upper antenna) and 102 floors, it was for a long time the tallest skyscraper in the world. During a trip to New York the visit from the terrace of the skyscraper is "A must" absolutely not to be missed.



    There are 2 observation points. The first and perhaps the most famous, as the location of many films, is the terrace located on the 86th floor which allows a 360 ° view of the city. The second is the observatory located on the top floor, the 102nd.

    From 86 floor the view over New York is magnificent. You see the Statue of Liberty, Fifth Avenue, Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park and all the major symbols of the Big Apple. From 102 floor the view is even wider up to, on clear days, 130 km away. The elevator ride is also very exciting.
