I don't want to change the ESB. I love it as it is now. I did say it is my favorite of all. Just making a point on why I feel NY needs a mega skyscraper. I just want to see NYC get even bigger in height is all. Then it won't have to play catch up with the other cities later in the coming years. The "Empire State Building" Rules.

Yes, I mean look at this:

To this day, I still can't put my finger on it, but something about the Manhattan skyline this seems, so....perfect.

@Aluminum: While it's true Chicago may have been the birthplace of the Modern Skyscraper, New York City was the chief market that brought it to new heights in the 20th century.

I understand your feeling behind this, but the ESB has such perfect proportions. Maybe just my opinion but all the set backs and the height of its main body, all of it is perfectly proportioned into a work of art. Adding 10 floors or adding or subtracting anything would ruin and cheapen it.

Put it this way - the ESB is the perfect skyscraper, at the perfect location, on the world's most
famous skyline. In fact, the location of the ESB makes it hard to find a perfect location for another.

Some earlier shots of the ESB at sunrise:

Scruffy, When you really think about it and even though it's close to impossible to do, Adding 3-4 floors on each level of the ESB really wouldn't change it much in shape appearance other than it looking more bigger and much taller. It is a perfect skyscraper as it is now but; can you imagine it being even bigger than it is? What is life without imagination?

Dac150 Mar 10, 2008 7:48 PM

The beauty of Manhattan is that it doesn't need these new modern glassy gaudy megatalls to show who the king is.

JDRCRASH Mar 11, 2008 4:34 AM

What i'm looking forward to is developments such as the geometric Foster Building that was completed a few years back; while expanding upwards, your still able to conserve some history here and there.

Empire State Building attracts two leading financial firms.

Real Estate Weekly
March 12, 2008


The Empire State Building has landed two more prestigious financial firms, Funaro & Co. and Goldin Associates, LLC, announced Stephen Eynon of CB Richard Ellis, director of leasing for the property.

Funaro & Co., which is relocating from One Penn Plaza, leased the entire 41st floor of 20,008 s/f. Michael Burgio of Cushman & Wakefield represented the firm in the lease negotiations.

Goldin Associates, represented by Charles Borrok and Philip Weiss of Cushman & Wakefield, leased 10,577 ss/f on the 18th floor. The firm is currently based at 400 Madison Avenue.

"These signings further highlight the steady interest in the property among high-caliber tenants within the financial sector," noted Eynon.

"The response from the real estate and business communities in general to the $500 million capital improvement program has been overwhelming. Furthermore, in addition to securing these two prominent companies, we are further gratified that both transactions were a by-product of our successful and ongoing space consolidation plan."


Founded in 1947, Funaro & Co. has offices in New York City and Milan. The firm provides a wide range of services, including accounting and auditing, tax reporting and compliance, tax advisory, management consulting, and transaction advisory.

Goldin Associates, a financial advisory and turnaround consulting firm, was founded in 1990 by Harrison J. Goldin, the former comptroller of The City of New York. The firm specializes in underperforming businesses and distressed situations, including financial and operational restructurings, crisis management and bankruptcies. The Deal, a publication that covers the financial industry, consistently designates Goldin as one of the industry's leading advisory firms.

Soaring 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan, the Empire State Building is the World's Most Famous Office Building. With new investments in infrastructure, public areas and amenities, the Empire State Building has attracted first-rate tenants in a diverse array of industries from around the world.

Improvements--planned and completed--total more than $500 million and include a strategic upgrading of the ground floor retail mix and a comprehensive restoration of the Empire State Building's art deco lobby and ceiling. A new messenger center, modernization of the building's systems, new restrooms, air-conditioned public corridors, and new, improved multi-layered security systems comprise some of the building's contemporary amenities.

All 65 marble elevator cabs have been refurbished and the building's 6,500 windows have been replaced, making the Empire State Building far more energy efficient and earning it a coveted "Energy Star" designation.


The Empire State Building is part of the W&H Properties portfolio. Broker commissions are paid in full at lease signing.

I watched the original King Kong earlier this week. When I was reminded that it was filmed in 1933, it struck me that the ESB portrayed in the movie was almost brand, spanking new.

I've been lurking here for almost a couple of *years* and haven't been able to join till now because of various site problems...

...but I should like to take this moment to comment on the remarkable nature of this photo. If one can only pull back on the overall pan and superimpose Tower Verre, the anticipated development along the West side, plus the continuing "canyonization" along Avenues Sixth and Eighth...

The mind reels. :dissy:

As I understand it, the main lobby is being restored to its original Art Deco appearance, including replacements for its original ceiling murals in lieu of an unfortunate drop-ceiling installed in the 1960's.

Things I would like to see improved, in addition to this renovation: right now, when one takes an elevator ride to the observatory you have to change elevators in a sky lobby that features peeling paint and huge portable fans blowing around hot air. It would be nice if air conditioning was installed, and those gross fans put away, and if that lobby was decently repainted. Hopefully, the lobby renovation is a sign that the owner - Trump, who owns a 99 year lease on it - is finally prepared to treat the building as the milestone in the history of world architecture that it is.

NEW YORK | The Empire State Building | 1,472' Pinnacle | 103 FLOORS | 1931
 
When it comes to iconic symbols of cities, Paris has the Eiffel Tower, London
has Big Ben, other cities are know by distinguished landmarks. The Empire
State Building, completed in 1931, takes its place as arguably New York's
greatest icon. Holding the title of world's tallest for four decades - still a
record - the tower has become a symbol of the city around the world. Made
famous from movies such as the classic "King Kong" and countless others,
there's hardly anything "New York" you can pick up that doesn't portray the
Empire State Building. Currently serving a second tour of duty as the city's
tallest skyscraper, it's popularity only seems to grow. Any visit to the
building will confirm it as a place to see and be seen in New York, a must on
any tourist's visit (from below, or above).

I've been to the top of the building many times over the years, but after a
couple of years off, it was time to get back to the top.

Other than being a symbol of the city worldwide, one of the attractions of
the building is the observation deck at the top of the tower, once againg the
city's highest. With decks on the 86th and 102nd floors, the building offers
great views of the metropolis from east to west, north to south.

100. So while it may not reign as New York's, or even Midtown's tallest forever,
it will forever reign as an icon of icons, a draw to millions and generations of people,
from all over the world.

The mind reels. :dissy:

It will be great, no doubt.

Nice shots! The last ones remind me of the time my friend and I snuck up to the top when it was closed on during the summer of 1994. We had the 102nd floor to ourselves and saw the WTC get struck by lightning during a thunderstorm.

thanks for the great tour!

The density of NY is simply astounding, no matter how many times I see it I can never get enough:tup:

The King... and I'll be there in 10 days time!

Great tour, NYg!

Btw, what's the best hour of day to visit? I currently have it planned the day we do the Fifth, northbound, with Bryant/NYPL, Rockefeller Center and the MoMA (our hotel is just 2 blocks away to the south).

I'd like to visit the Top of The Rock too, and I read one of the best moment is dusk or night. Mmmh, hard choice!

It's probably better to go to the ESB later at night, that's if you want to avoid some of the crowding (it's been insane lately). But its worth the wait for the daytime view. The Top of The Rock can be done at anytime, its never really a long wait there, and its a more pleasant experience (3 decks, and not as crowded). But both decks complement each other, its worth seeing both.

An excellent photo tour. I was truly captivated.

Beautiful! The density of NYC is insane!! I hope to go sometime
