Even the "World’s Most Famous Building" can be improved

It has been an iconic part of the Manhattan skyline for almost 90 years and dubbed the “World’s Most Famous Building” but that doesn’t mean there can’t be improvement.

This weekend the Empire State Building will be taken to new heights as the 102nd story observatory re-opens to the public with a reimagined experience.

Empire State Realty Trust is promising a never-before-seen look at the inside of the tower’s mast and a glimpse of the world-famous tower lights as the elevator rises from the 86th floor.

And when they reach the 102nd floor, almost at the top of the 1,454 foot structure, visitors will experience the 24 crystal-clear, eight-foot-tall windows, the 102nd floor is an enclosed, climate-controlled, all-weather Observation Deck allowing 360-degree views of the city and beyond from the heart of New York City.

"The 102nd floor Observatory is the crown jewel of the Empire State Building. We've removed all the obstructions and obstacles, giving Guests access to a view that is centrally-located and unrivaled in New York City," said Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman and CEO of Empire State Realty Trust.

While the new observatory will be the ‘wow factor’ the building has also seen significant investment in energy efficiency, infrastructure, public areas and amenities.
