The Empire State building is  the tallest building in NYC. If you can stomach it, visit the top of the building. The views are breath taking !! I visited the building aver 20 years ago and I still remember standing outside of the building on a sunny summer day.  It wasn't so sunny in New York on Tuesday.Take a look at the video to see how the Empire Building Strikes back!. It's not easy when you have to take on Mother Nature. It is estimated that the Empire State Building is struck by lightening 100 times a year.
