New York City is one of the most fascinating cities in the world, but you must see it from the top of the Empire State Building! The Empire State Building is located in Midtown Manhattan at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street. It stands a total of 1,454 feet. The building's name was derived from the nickname for New York - the Empire State. It held the record as the world's tallest building for 40 years, until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower, which was completed in 1972. The Empire State Building boasts one of the most popular outdoor observatories in the world. You can tour the Observatory year-round for incredible views of Manhattan and beyond. If you get hungry, stop in at one of two restaurants, a sushi bar, or three coffee shops. You can also find a drug store, a Hallmark card shop, a post office, and two banks. Don’t miss visiting this American cultural icon! If you are interested in the Empire State Building, you may also be interested in our Architecture Tours in New York.
