Empire State Building
Address: 350 Fifth Avenue, New York City, NY, USA
Date built: 1931
Design: Shreve, Lamb & Harmon, Architects
The Empire State Building is a celebrated 20th Century skyscraper, designed in the Art Deco style.
This celebrated tower is a 381m high skyscraper, a world-famous New York landmark. It is a good example of Art Deco architecture – subtle on the exterior, more accentuated in the tower interior.
The Observatory is open every day, including weekends and holidays.
Excavation of the site began on January 22 1930 with construction of this Manhattan skyscraper building starting on March 17 1930. The framework rose at a rate of 4 ½ stories per week.
The masonry work for the building was completed in November 13 1930.
President Hoover pressed a button (unusually not in New York City but in Washington, D.C.) which turned on the Empire State Building’s lights and officially opened the building on May 1 1931.
