The Empire State Building
The Empire State Building is a 1,250 feet, 102-story tall building in the heart of Manhattan.
It cost $41 million ($595 million in today's money) and took 401 days to construct by 3,500 construction workers, finishing in 1931.
It has 73 elevators, an antenna that was added in the 50s (which now takes the height to 1,454 feet) and receives 4 million visitors a year, generating $43 million a year for the owners.

In 2011, a guy from Los Angeles called Paz managed to bluff his way into Paris Hiltons 30th birthday party.
After getting free drinks and dancing a little with celebrities, he noticed that nobody was being given any birthday cake. After asking someone when they may be dishing it out, he was told the cake was a $2,000 cake that would go into the bin after photos were taken with Paris next to it.
Realising they were going to throw the cake in the bin, he decided to pick the cake up, walk confidently past security so as not to raise suspicion and left the party with it.
30 minutes later he had helped himself to a nice big slice of the cake and then left the remainder of it with a group of homeless people to enjoy.
A Ghost Kitchen is an establishment that runs multiple takeaway services from the same premises. During the Pandemic lockdowns, many restaurants became Ghost Kitchens to remain open and trading, providing different food services for delivery that all came from one commercial kitchen. Running multiple takeaways from one kitchen avoided paying multiple business rates, taxes and extra red tape.
