illed as the Eighth Wonder of the World at its opening, the Empire State Building immediately captured the imagination of lovers, movie directors, even Heads of State, and continues to attract over two million visitors a year.

King Kong
The entire building was completed in one year and forty-five days. The sleek limestone and stainless-steel design presided as the tallest building in the world for over forty years, and still remains a quintessential landmark, the defining symbol of New York City.

From 1931 to the present, the building has played host to many of the world's renowned political and entertainment figures, such as Fidel Castro, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Nikita Krushchev, and Lassie.

Although over ninety movies have featured the Empire State Building, none have been as memorable at "King Kong." Released in 1933, "King Kong" featured then state-of-the-art special effects, and culminates with the love struck gorilla swatting down planes like so many flies while perched atop the just-completed Empire State Building.
