This miniature building is worthy of display on the most impressive desk, cabinet, sideboard, or mantel. It is designed in America, but made in China (hence the extremely reasonable price). It is quite sturdy and solid, not flexible at all.
The Empire State Building is a 102-story landmark Art Deco skyscraper in New York City. It stood as the world's tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower was completed in 1972. Following the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, the Empire State Building once again became the tallest building in New York City and New York State.
The building's distinctive Art Deco spire was originally designed to be a mooring mast and depot for dirigibles. The 102nd floor was originally a landing platform with a dirigible gangplank. However, the idea proved to be impractical and dangerous after a few attempts with airships, due to the powerful updrafts caused by the size of the building itself.
The Empire State Building has been named by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
