The story of the Empire State Building, from the start of construction to modern day fame, is one you’ll never forget. Intended to be the world’s first 100+ story building, construction began on March 17, 1930. Construction was completed in a record-breaking 1 year and 45 days. At its top floor, the Empire State Building stands 1,250 feet (380 meters) tall. Counting the spire and antenna, the building clocks in at a mighty 1,454 feet (443 meters). It’s currently the 4th tallest building in New York City, the 6th tallest in the United States, and the 43rd tallest tower in the world. In 2011, Cornell University researchers analyzed millions of photos and concluded that the Empire State Building is the most photographed building in the world. Each year, we host more than 4 million visitors from practically every region of the globe. You never know who you’ll meet at the top! The Empire State Building was named the #1 attraction in the U.S. by the 2022 TripAdvisor travelers’ choice awards!
