Happy 75th Birthday Empire State!

Yep, today the Empire State Building in New York City turns 75 years old. Once the tallest building in the world, it stands 1,454 feet tall (to the top of the lightning rod) with 103 floors. It cost $40 million dollars and 7 million man hours in 1930 to build, and it actually finished ahead of schedule!

If you haven't had the opportunity to hang out on the 86th floor observation deck, it really is quite a view, so make the trip if you can.
