General Knowledge Questions

The Empire State Building

Construction started on January 22nd, 1930 and was completed on April 11th, 1931, 12 days ahead of schedule and just 410 days after construction commenced. Of the 3,400 workers, mostly immigrants from Europe, along with hundreds of Mohawk iron workers, 14 fell to their deaths. The fatalities were attributed to the staggering speed with which they worked plus health and safety standards not being what they are today.

Being an American icon, the 102 story building was designed in the distinctive Art Deco style and has been named as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and its street floor interior is a designated landmark. It's located on Fifth Avenue between West 33rd and 34th Streets in Midtown, Manhattan and has a height of 1,250 feet to the roof but with its antenna and spire included it reaches 1,454 feet high making it the tallest building in New York until the World Trader Center was built in 1970. But in 2001 after the tragic September 11 attacks it became New York's tallest skyscraper for another 11 years until One World Trade Center topped it in 2012. Its name is derived from the nickname for New York, the Empire State. The following film is a fascinating look at the life and times of New Yorkers before, during and after construction of this iconic building.
