From the ground, the Empire State Building requires a crane in the neck to find the top.
From up above, it’s surprising how quickly it becomes one piece of a much larger puzzle. It’s also puts into perspective how vast the sky is because the skyscraper begins to look minute. The Empire State Building is a 102 story skyscraper in Manhattan built in 1931, and it’s one of the highest buildings in the world. New York is known as the Empire State, which led to the name of this building. It’s truly an icon of the city and one of the most well-known structures. People wait in long lines to get to the top of the Empire State Building to see 360-degree views of New York City, but you’ll automatically get to spot it out from your ride in the sky. So skip the lines and fly high!
