(Op 17 maart 1930 begint in New York de bouw van het Empire State Building en mede door de gedrevenheid van de bouwvakkers is het gebouw al klaar op 1 mei 1931. Op diezelfde dag opent president Herbert Hoover het gebouw door vanuit zijn kantoor in Washington D.C. op een knop te drukken waardoor de lichten van het Empire State Building gaan branden. Het Empire State Building is gebouwd naar aanleiding van een “competitie” tussen Walter Chrysler, van de Chrysler Corporation en John Raskob, oprichter van General Motors. Het doel van de competitie was om te zien wie het eerst het hoogste gebouw ter wereld kon bouwen. In 1945 loopt het gebouw ernstige schade op doordat er tijdens zeer dichte mist een bommenwerper tegen de muur van de 79de verdieping aanvliegt. Als bezoeker kunt u rondlopen (ook buiten) op de 102de verdieping waar u bij helder weer een uitzicht heeft van vele kilometers. U staat dan op 381 meter hoogte. De top van de antenne ligt op 443 meter. Het geraamte bestaat uit 60.000 ton staal, heeft 6500 ramen en er zijn 10 miljoen bakstenen gebruikt. Er werken 18.000 mensen in deze wolkenkrabber en het trekt jaarlijks 3 tot 4 miljoen bezoekers. Het gebouw bestaat grotendeels uit kantoren, appartementen en op de onderste verdiepingen winkelgelegenheden. Na de Terroristische aanslagen op 11 september 2001, waarbij het World Trade Center werd vernietigd, is deze wolkenkrabber opnieuw het hoogste gebouw van de stad.)
