The Empire State Building

The Empire State Building

The Empire State building is the most iconic and well-known building in New York, famous for its  art deco style and height. It was built in less than 15 months, between March 1930 and May 1931, at a  rate of one floor per day, finally reaching 103 storeys to the roof when completed. The height of the  building, at 1250 feet (380m) to the roof and 1454 feet (443.2m) to the tip of the antenna, rendered  it the tallest building in the world at the time. Since the destruction of the world trade centre, it has  again become the tallest building in New York.

Designed by Shreve, Lamb and Harmone, it was originally planned as a fifty-floor office building, but after many revisions to the design was changed to the towering skyscraper it became, in a bid for  creating the tallest building at the time. The site of the building, between 33rd and 34th street in  Lower Manhatton, was originally a farm before a hotel owned by the Astor family was built in the  late 1800s. This was demolished to make way for the Empire State. Named after the fond nickname  for New York, the building is at the heart of the city itself, always a popular tourist attraction  because of its 1920’s style and art deco flavour.
