Empire State Building--To be Famous all over again

It is literally one of the most famous buildings ever,and after it's completion in 1931,it dwarfed every other structure on earth,but has of course lost it's WORLD'S TALLEST title many years ago,and thanks to the original King Kong ,this movie actually added to its fame.Well close to 75 years later this movie has been remade,in the same time period as the original,and guess what, the climatic scene will once again take place at the top of the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING.Let's face it, GREAT LEGENDS NEVER DIE

I thought that the ESB became famous ever since it was built.

A FIGURE OF SPEECH

It's always been, no doubt, as I mentioned in the beginning of the letter,but in otherwords,it's reliving it's passed by being in the KING KONG movie again.
