The Empire State Building

From the Series American Places: From Vision to Reality

In 1930, anyone walking down Fifth Avenue in the middle of New York City would have seen an incredible sight. A forest of giant steel beams rose hundreds of feet into the sky. Thousands of men stood on the beams cutting, drilling, and hammering. The workers were constructing the Empire State Building—the tallest skyscraper the world had ever seen.

The Empire State Building traces the incredible story of the 102-story skyscraper, starting with the dream of two wealthy businessmen and ending with the completion of the awe-inspiring building. Large color photos, maps, and fact boxes enrich the captivating story, which is sure to excite even the most reluctant readers.
