Caption

The Empire State Building, New York City rises 1250 feet, or nearly a quarter of a mile above Fifth avenue. It is 200 feet higher than any other building and 266 feet higher than the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It contains 63 acres of floor space and enough steel to load a train 11 miles long. A dirigible moored to the mast atop the Empire State, world's tallest building, would exert a greater pull than three locomotives.
