30 Rockefeller Center

As the home of the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) since construction completed in 1933, no other skyscraper has been more associated with show business. Whether you are passing through its storied halls on the way to see Saturday Night Live, looking at sites like Empire State Building and Central park from the open-air observation deck.

Empire State Building

Try imagining New York City’s skyline without the towering spire of the Empire State Building. Impossible, right? Taking a mere 11 months to construct, the 1,454-foot-tall emblem became the city’s highest building upon completion in 1931. (When One World Trade Center is finished, it will tower over the ESB by a good 300 feet.)

Hearst Tower

It is only fitting that the home to shome of the country’s biggest magazines (Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, etc.) has its own story to tell. The six-story base of the 46-story Hearst Corporation headquarters was built in 1928, but because of the Great Depression, the skyscraper was not completed.
