The Empire State Building in New York has been labelled as a feat of true American accomplishment standing 1454 feet tall and is currently the 9th tallest building in the world and the 4th tallest freestanding structure in the Americas. The building was named the 7th wonder of the world by the American Society of Civil Engineers attracting 120 million people to its New York observatories (the 86th-floor observation deck offers impressive 360-degree views of the city) equating to roughly 3.6 million visitors a year and has appeared in over 90 films, most famously King Kong.
There are many hotels and restaurants in the surrounding area offering a wide variety of excellent cuisine to suit all tastes and budgets. The Building is also home to the New York Skyride which is the only virtual tour simulator in New York City. Narrated by actor Kevin Bacon, this 30-minute virtual adventure takes you high above the streets of New York, where you`ll learn the history of the city and see sights such as Statue of Liberty, Times Square, and The Yankee Stadium.
