The Empire State Building is a 102-story skyscraper located in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, on Fifth Avenue between West 33rd and 34th Streets. It has a roof height of 1,250 feet, and with its antenna spire included, it stands a total of 1,454 feet high.  Its name is derived from the nickname for New York, the Empire State. It stood as the world's tallest building for nearly 40 years, from its completion in early 1931 until the topping out of the original World Trade Center's North Tower in late 1970.  It currently is the fifth-tallest completed skyscraper in the United States and the 25th-tallest in the world[1].
