By the looks of that last pic, I'm guessing sometime in the late 60s- One Penn is nowhere to be seen, neither is 1345 6th Avenue or the XYZ buildings.

I see the General Motors Building topped-out and half-way clad. I will guess it's from 1967.

If the upper half of the building were only that clean today. The antenna farm is a damn shame.

Thanks NYguy those are great pics of "The King of All Buildings". Just one question I have is the tip of the antenna 1,472 or 1,454 to tip? I know that with out the antenna it is 1,250 feet.

NYguy Apr 20, 2017 2:12 PM

It was reverted to 1,454 ft the last time.
They are currently upgrading again, don't know if it will remain the same.

Those pics with Kylie jenner and that other guy on the top deck...No way in hell would I go up there. The microwave radiation from the antennae is pretty intense.


On second thought...we should put all the Jenners and Kardashians up there...

It looks really open, which for me would be uncomfortable because it's round and small. You would always feel like you're on the edge.

Exclusive Reveal: The Empire State Building’s 102nd-Floor Observation Deck Set For Exterior Overhaul

https://newyorkyimby.com/wp-content/...le-777x312.png

Quote:

The Empire State Building, has been an icon of the Manhattan skyline since 1931, and the 82nd and 102nd floors of the Art Deco giant have been a primary destination for tourists since it was first built. In 1929, the structure on the 102nd floor was originally planned to be a mooring point for dirigibles. The deck would have featured a space for passenger traffic on the floor, however, when zeppelins fell out of favor, the observation deck took its stead. Now, YIMBY has the first look at plans by Beyer Blinder Belle to revamp the original exterior’s claustrophobic configuration with new floor-to-ceiling windows that would do due justice to the sweeping views from within.

Currently, the steel window frames and their surrounding cladding are largely original to the construction of the building in 1931. At some point, the original glass was replaced with 1/4″ polycarbonate panels with electromagnetic shielding.

The 102nd-story observation deck features 4’8″ windows around; while offering an unforgettable view of Manhattan, they arguably leave something to be desired.

Plans designed and proposed by Beyer Blinder Belle offer a solution. The plans would remove the existing windows and lower structure, and replace them with 8’6″ floor-to-ceiling windows. Offering a completely unobstructed view, this structural modification would no doubt keep visitors smiling for decades to come.

Empire State Building’s observation deck will feature a mounted camera for the ‘ultimate selfie’

In addition to the selfie cameras, the architecture firm will add floor-to-ceiling windows to provide better views from one of the most iconic skyscrapers in the world. The observation deck’s 4’8″ windows and lower structure will be replaced with nearly 9-foot windows for a totally unobstructed view of the city.

The proposed upgrades are set to match the tower’s signature Art-Deco style. The expected completion date has not yet been announced.
