Empire State Building

Map & Directions 350 5th Ave.
New York, NY 10018


Village Voice's Description

The Empire State Building is one New York attraction you should not be proud you missed. The fact that it's struck by lightning nearly 100 times per year should be enough to send you to the 86th story, and if it isn't, how about the amazing views? To avoid the throngs of people who don't understand how New York works, go during the fall season and buy your tickets at esbnyc.org. The last elevator to the top is at 11:15 p.m.

    The best touristy venue, this 80-year-old landmark is simply stunning. Check out the Art Deco flourishes in the lobby, restored to its original gilded splendor in 2009.

  • Time Out New York on 11/22/11

    Through an unmarked (and locked, sorry) door on the 102nd-floor observation deck is a narrow terrace that was once intended to be a docking station for airships moored to the mast
