You sneak a flask up there and raise a toast to the whole city of New York. ~Maureen Johnson

For history buffs and architects:
When completed in 1931, the Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world for 40 years, until the World Trade Center towers passed it in 1970. When these towers were brought down in the September 11, 2001 attacks, the Empire State Building was again the tallest building in New York. It stopped being New York’s tallest building in 2012 when the new One World Trade Center was built.
