The Empire State Building is synonymous with New York City. The
city's skyline is instantly recognizable because of this 1,454 ft (443.2
m) building in midtown Manhattan. This familiarity has doubtless
led to its starring role in movies such as King Kong and Sleepless in
Seattle, just two of the most well-known films among dozens which have
featured this famous landmark. The tower glows with various themed
light displays throughout the year, celebrating special events and
holidays. Since its completion on November 13, 1930, almost 110
million visitors have taken in New York's breathtaking skyline from its
two observation decks on the 86th and 102nd floors. Currently, over
3.5 million tourists visit the building each year.
