What a coincidence...

1. October 26 (1955): Austrian National Day
2. Red / White / Red: Autria's flag.

The mighty Empire State Building holding vigil as most of Manhattan lays in darkness during Sandy's fury!

truly the best. I do think one day in the future America's 'old build' ornate skyscrapers from the early era will become just as lauded as old cathedrals are today.

Buildings like ESB and Chrysler pretty much already are, in New York. That they're not there one day is unthinkable in the public mind.

The building's light-up today for election day is actually going to show how much electoral votes Obama and Romney will collect tonight. Carlos, if you are reading this, it would be nice if you could follow it up through pics.

Empire State Building Tenant Roster Cut to Third of Size Since 2006: Malkin

By Stephen Kleege
November 6, 2012

Quote:

The Empire State Building is becoming a more exclusive address.

The tenant roster in the iconic 81-year-old skyscraper has been cut to 171 companies from more than 600 in 2006, before Malkin Holdings took over supervision of the property. The average rent has increased to $42.10 a square foot from about $26. The building, which is among the few notable commercial assets in Murray Hill, is approximately 20 percent vacant, partly because Malkin is keeping space off the market as it looks to assemble offices suited to larger users.

The tower is in the midst of a $550 million modernization, including restoration of the Art Deco lobby and ceiling, new elevators, improvements to the mechanical and electrical and security systems and LED exterior lighting. Plans for next year include opening a “white tablecloth” restaurant on the ground floor, as well as tenant-only fitness and conference centers on the concourse level and the 65th floor, respectively, Mr. Malkin said.

“The Empire State Building really is a small neighborhood of its own,” Mr. Malkin said. “You never have to leave the building.”

ESB looks so strange and unfinished without the antenna.
