IPTC INFO
CaptionThe Empire State Building is a 102-story skyscraper located in Midtown Manhattan New York City at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street. It has a roof height of 1 250 feet 381 meters and with its antenna spire included it stands a total of 1 454 ft 443.2 m high.[6] Its name is derived from the nickname for New York the Empire State. It stood as the world's tallest building for 40 years from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower was completed in 1972. Following the September 11 attacks in 2001 the Empire State Building was again the tallest building in New York --- --- --- The Empire State Building is generally thought of as an American cultural icon. It is designed in the distinctive Art Deco style and has been named as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. --- --- --- The Empire State Building is generally thought of as an American cultural icon. It is designed in the distinctive Art Deco style and has been named as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. --- --- --- The Empire State Building cost $40 948 900 to build equal to roughly $500 000 000 in 2010.[4] Long-term forecasting of the life cycle of the structure was implemented at the design phase to ensure that the building's future intended uses were not restricted by the requirements of previous generations. This is particularly evident in the over-design of the building's electrical system. Unlike most of today's skyscrapers the Empire State Building features an art deco design typical of pre–World War II architecture in New York. The modernistic stainless steel canopies of the entrances on 33rd and 34th Streets lead to two story-high corridors around the elevator core crossed by stainless steel and glass-enclosed bridges at the second-floor level. The elevator core contains 67 elevators.
