There are also 2 additional utility floors above the 102nd floor. The 103rd floor has an outdoor balcony. It also was originally going to be a zeppelin port, but updrafts from the street canyons were so strong it kept the zeppelins from being able to dock on the first two trials. All hope of it becoming a port someday vanished 6 years later when the Hindenburg exploded (refer to my avatar). Since then zeppelins have become obsolete, making its original intent seem almost ancient. Above that floor is the 104th, which lies right beneath the dome.
Is it true that in the mast there aren't 16 real floors ( one roof, one floors ) and that the real floors in ESB are 97 and not 102 ?

Yes, it's true. I've been in it. There is a set of metal stairs up the whole shaft to the 102nd floor. I counted as I climbed them... each time the stairs turn the other direction is where they count each "floor."

I actually found an old diagram.

I seem to recall doing the same thing when I first visited. I went up the stairs until I reached the 101st floor.

Anyone who visited NY about eight months ago, and visits again now, is going to be, WTF? Where did that come from? I almost wish I had not know of this building just to experience the shock of unexpectedly seeing it for the first time.

Sorry but the chick on the right looking at phone/camera is very attractive. Great picture overall, attractive woman, attractive place from where pic is taken, and attractive tower. 10/10. 6 stars. Bravo

The taller this building gets, The Uglier It Looks! It has absolutely no style and with the large concrete portion of the façade looks like something right out of the war years. The only thing it has going for it is that it's Tall.
