Don't know if this has been mentioned before but that Observation Level is really the 101st floor - the 102nd floor is the outdoor platform/parapet above.

For extra $20.00, I want to go up to the parapet too!



Look ->

Why no one says the real number of the ESB? 96? 97?

Just imagine what the ESB would look like without all of the profitable transmission antenna/equipment up there ...

The Empire State Building is Uber’s top tourist destination

By David Meyer
December 3, 2019


Quote:
Next time King Kong is in town, he’ll probably take an Uber.

The Empire State Building was been named by the ride-hail app service as the number one tourist attraction in the world that its users traveled to in 2019, the company said in a blog post Tuesday.

Lower Manhattan’s six-year-old Freedom Tower took the number two spot on the list followed by non-New York destinations like the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace and the Vatican.

New York City tourists and residents took just over 600,000 ride-hail trips with Uber and its competitors in 2018, a 37 percent increase from 2017 and a 137 percent jump from 2017, according to city data.

Yet while the Empire State Building’s distinction may be Uber’s top tourist destination, the state’s most Ubered-to location isn’t in Manhattan — it’s Elmhurst’s 967,000-square-foot Queens Center Mall.

Wow! Surprised though that your allowed to fly a drone so carefree around Manhattan, noticed a lot of folks do it. Also surprised that so many office lights are on during this time.

You aren't. There are really only 2 parks in the entire city where you can legally fly a drone.
