New York from atop a skyscraper
New York's skyscrapers are actually movie stars as they shine in many a Hollywood production. Let they unveil their secrets to you and take you to the stars.
Empire State Building Observatory
The Empire State Building has been inspiring many for decades. Hollywood put King Kong there as well as Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in the movie 'Sleepless in Seattle'. From its observation platform located at the 86th floor you can enjoy marvellous views. 320 metres above street level 360° views of Manhattan and surroundings unfold. Did you know the skyscraper was built as early as 1930 - 1931 in as little as 410 days? Impressive isn't it!
