Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument / Empire State BuildingApril 19, 2014
Empire State Building is a monument to man’s architectural genius. The 103-storey building which opened in 1931 used to be the tallest in the US. Currently, it is “the fourth-tallest completed skyscraper in the United States (after the One World Trade Center, the Willis Tower and Trump International Hotel and Tower, both in Chicago.” [Wikipedia]. It was drizzling when we went there but tourists flocked to it despite the not-so-good weather. I guess not visiting it would make the journey to NY incomplete that’s why our hosts brought us to the Observatory Deck on the 86th floor.
