About the Empire State Building
At 102 stories and 1,454’ high, the Empire State Building was once the tallest in the city and the world. It may not hold those titles anymore, but the elegant tower continues to be one of the most spectacular landmarks in New York City. However, it is the tallest LEED certified building in the United States.
To experience breathtaking views of New York City, visit the Empire State Building in the center of Midtown Manhattan. You’ll find observatory decks on the 86th and 102nd floor of the building, both of which offer 360-degree views of the city and beyond. It takes approximately 40 minutes to get to the top of the tower.
Be sure to catch a glimpse of the Empire State Building at night, as the international icon of the New York skyline fires up its tower lights every night. You’ll see different colors every night, like red, white, and blue for Memorial Day or green in celebration of Earth Day or St. Patrick’s Day. On special holidays and events, you’ll be treated to a dazzling light show, like the fireworks-inspired lighting of red and gold in honor of the Chinese Lunar Year or a rotation of team colors in celebration of MLB’s Opening Day. No matter when you visit New York City, a visit to the Empire State Building is a must.
