In all the world there must be so many wonderful and amazing buildings....some old, some new but as someone who is 55 years old and loved Architecture for as long as I can remember and has been lucky enough to have travelled and seen many of these structures I still put The Empire State Building at the top of my list as it stood for so many years soaring so far beyond any other skyscraper. As a child I wondered if the day would come that I could see it for real and stand on it's observation deck..I finally did in 2000.....On that trip I also saw palaces,cathedrals galleries and Hotels, amazed at what man can build but my childhood wonder holds it's awe no matter how high new towers go.
