Whenever I go to New York, I do love to see the new skyscrapers, and how far along they are, and notice how the skyline changes every six months or so. The one thing that stays consistent is that the Empire State Building always keeps my attention. When I view the skyline from a bus or train, it's hard to take my eyes off of it. The Empire State Building is, without a doubt, the world's most iconic skyscraper. It was built 87 years ago, and it never gets old. And no matter how many new buildings surpass it in height, or how many skyscrapers get built around it, nothing will ever say to me "welcome to New York" as much as the Empire State Building.

Yes, it's just so iconic and distinctive, and that magnificent spire and crown as a peak on the tower draws the eye, much more so than if it had been simply a flat topped tower.

It's still more massive than pretty much anything that has surpassed it in height in recent years. In New York and elsewhere.
