TBH with you, the ESB isn't that famous outside USA. The WTC Twin Towers were much more famous internationally. ESB is the local icon and WTC were the global icon for NYC.

Not true at all, the empire state building has always been famous around the world, the twin towers only really became famous after 9/11

Not sure where you're from, but in my country the WTC were infinitely more popular long before 9/11. I had many family members and relatives taking pics from the roof of WTC and other photos of the building when they were on tour. Not many people are even aware of ESB in my country (pre and post 9/11)

Actually he's right.No one actually really remember the WTC aside from the 9/11 connection.PRE 9/11 show someone in a street of some Asian or Europe cities a picture of WTC,they won't be able to tell which city the WTC came from.Show people ESB and I guarantee it's the first thing that pops to mind when they pictured NY.
