The Empire State Buyilding was an amazing feat, finished in suce little time during a depression. It's possible the most beautiful building in America.

I loved the Empire State and the Crysler when I was there April 2001.I'd be walking down a street.....then.....wham!!!! the Empire just popped out of nowhere!!!.Just majestic!!!!

The view of the skyline from the top was mesmorising.I was lucky to see the twin towers balancing out the lower downtown with their Majesty was well.I dont like the freedom tower at all.I think they should build the twin towers again.Just the way they were.
