- It is located on Fifth Avenue between 33rd and 34th Streets in Manhattan.
- It was constructed during a race to create the world’s tallest building.
- The building was finished in record time.
- The first light to shine atop the Empire State Building was a beacon that told those within a 50-mile radius that Franklin Delano Roosevelt had been elected President of the United States in November 1932.
- There are observatories on both the 86th and 102nd floors. They attract around four million visitors annually.
- The building has been featured in several movies such as “An Affair to Remember,” “Sleepless in Seattle,” “Elf” and “The Amazing Spider-Man.”
- The tower lights are turned off on foggy nights during the spring and autumn bird migration seasons, so the lights will not confuse birds and cause them to fly into the building.
