The Empire State Building is a 103-story skyscraper located in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street. It has a roof height of 1,250 feet, and with its antenna spire included, it stands a total of 1,454 feet high. Its name is derived from the nickname for New York, the Empire State. It stood as the world's tallest building for nearly 40 years, from its completion in early 1931 until the topping out of the original World Trade Center's North Tower in late 1970. Following the September 11 attacks in 2001, the Empire State Building was again the tallest building in New York, until One World Trade Center reached a greater height on April 30, 2012. The Empire State Building is currently the fourth-tallest completed skyscraper in the United States, and the 23rd-tallest in the world. It is also the fifth-tallest freestanding structure in the Americas. The Empire State Building is generally thought of as an American cultural icon. It is designed in the distinctive Art Deco style and has been named as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. LESS
Fifty years after Ford’s first Mustang model made its debut at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City, the new 2015 model has made it to the top of the Empire State Building. No, it didn’t climb the walls like King Kong. It wasn’t airlifted up there either. Engineers cut up one of the cars and took the pieces to to the top where it was reassembled, for the buzz. Ford chose the right place and the right time to launch their message about the new Mustang. Buzz is very important for helping a new product succeed.
