The Empire State Building is among the most famous buildings in the world with its magnificent views across the New York City skyline. In 2011, researchers at Cornell University proved that the Empire State Building is the most photographed building in the world. A ride up the Empire State Building is a must for any visitor in town, whether it's your first time or hundredth time. In addition to the dazzling city skyline, on a clear day, you can look out to New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and even Connecticut and Massachusetts. It is recommended to visit either in the morning between 8:00-11:00 or late evenings, between 22:00 to midnight to avoid the crowds.
