Photographer's Note

Como mensiono en mi foto anterior en un viaje relmpago a NJ, visit NY por un nico da.
Adems de la foto del edificio Chrysler el cual considero hermoso, el imponente Empire State tambin merece una fotografa.

De la Wikipedia en Espaol (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire_state)
El Edificio Empire State, actualmente el ms alto de Nueva York (Empire State Building, en ingls) es una torre de oficinas de 102 plantas ubicado en la ciudad de Nueva York. Su nombre proviene del apodo del estado de Nueva York, el Estado-Imperio.
Fue construido entre 1929 y 1931, durante la Gran Depresin. Cuenta con 102 plantas y un total de 381 metros de altura (443,5 m si se considera la antena superior). De estilo art dec, fue diseado por el estudio de arquitectos Shreve, Lamb y Hermon.
...Super al Edificio Chrysler y se convirti en el smbolo de poder de los Estados Unidos, siendo el rascacielos ms alto del mundo por 42 aos. Perdi este ttulo en 1974, cuando se inaugur la Torre Sears, en Chicago y tambin el de edificio ms alto de Nueva York un ao ms tarde, en 1975, con la inauguracin de las Torres Gemelas. Desde el atentado contra las Torres en septiembre de 2001, el edificio ha vuelto a ser el ms alto de Nueva York.

As I mention in my previous photo in a very quick trip to NJ, I visited NY only one day.
In addition to the Chrysler Building which I consider beautiful, the imposing Empire State building also deserves a photography.

From Wikipedia in English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire_State_Building)
The Empire State Building is a 102-story Art Deco skyscraper in New York City. Its name is derived from the nickname for the state of New York. It stood as the world's tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until the construction of the World Trade Center North Tower in 1972...
With the World Trade Center destroyed in the September 11, 2001 attacks, it is currently the tallest building in New York City and the second-tallest building in the United States, after the Sears Tower in Chicago...
The Empire State Building was designed by the architectural firm Shreve, Lamb and Harmon, which produced the building drawings in just two weeks, possibly using its earlier design for the Carew Tower in Cincinnati, Ohio as a basis. The general contractors were Starrett Brothers and Eken, and the project was financed by John J. Raskob and Pierre S. DuPont. The construction company was chaired by Alfred E. Smith, a former Governor of New York.
