The majestic Empire State Building was completed in 1931, becoming the world's tallest building at the time. While no longer the tallest, it remains as impressive as ever. At night the building is lit up, often with special colors marking important dates and holidays. Entry tickets can be purchased online through the Empire State Building's website or in the building's lobby. The main highlights here are the two observatories perched on the 86th and 102nd floors, where a bird's eye view of this magnificent city is a sight to behold. The observatory is open 365 days a year and tickets for the observatory can again be purchased online in order to avoid the lines. The observation decks are regularly open until 2a, so visitors can experience incredible nighttime views of the city that never sleeps.
