Empire State Building
The Empire State Building is an American cultural icon that stands at 102 stories. It's located on Fifth Avenue between West 33rd and 34th Streets in Midtown, Manhattan, NYC. The roof height is 1,250 feet and, with its antenna spire included, it stands 1,454 feet high. For nearly 40 years it stood as the world's tallest building until the World Trade Center's North Tower took the lead late in 1970. After the September 11 attacks in 2001, the Empire State Building again took the lead until One World Trade Center reached a greater height in April 2012. The Empire State Building has been named one of the "Seven Wonders of the Modern World" by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
