This is New York's symbol. It was New York's symbol before until it was replaced by the Twin Towers. Since September 11, the Empire State Building is the undisputed King of New York's skyline. It was built in the 1930ies and is 381m/1250ft or 443m/1454ft with the antenna. Besides the fact that this was one of the first huge sky scrapers in the World, the building boasts an interesting Art Deco style, which is very typical for the time, just that today's sky scrapers are really just glass, steel, and concrete, this one actually has some decorative details to it. 30,000 people live and work at Empire State Building, which is a myriad of shops, offices, restaurants, and basically everything a regular city would have. In any case, it's a must see when you go to New York. Unfortunately, since the fall of the Twin Towers, this is the only real good place to get a view over the city and the wait is long and can take up to 2 hours on busy days.
