From "New York" by Ken Burns, a nice tribute to the ESB:

How do you embed videos? I tried pasting the code. Anyway, this is an interesting video on sustainability in the Empire State Building -

Ever since my youth, whenever I heard the word "skyscraper", THIS gorgeous piece of architecture was and still is the first thing that comes to my mind, almost ingrained in my head, thanks in part to king kong lol

Wow, on opening day the ob.deck didn't have the mesh guard around it ! Guess a similar feel now is the upper deck of the 'Top of the Rock'.......and I visited the 'Carew Tower' in Cincinnati back in 2007 where the height is exaggerated by no railings......But the ESB deck is a must do in the world of things to do before you die ! Imagine back then..........nothing anywhere came close.......and for decades to follow!
