ABOUT THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING

The 8th Wonder of the World

King Kong climbed it, a B-25 bomber crashed into it in 1945, and it was built on the site of the first Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Is it worth a look? ABSOLUTELY!

The Empire State Building is one of Manhattan’s most iconic attractions. Unparalleled panoramic views of New York City from the Observation Decks on the 86th and 102nd floors will leave you speechless, and with countless photos ops. Manhattan may seem overwhelming large from the streets, but from the height of the ESB Observation Decks, you’ll see this phenomena revealed: At only  a little over 13 miles long by 2.3 miles wide, Manhattan is the smallest of the five boroughs of New York, but by far the most populated. This density, consisting of people and buildings, can be nowhere better seen than from the ESB.

Now, NY SKYRIDE, a unique, thrilling ride located on the second floor, lets you experience the Empire State Building in a whole new way.
