The Empire State Building is an architectural marvel, and one of the most spectacular attractions in New York City. The building itself was constructed in 1930 during the Great Depression and is a living monument to that era. The Empire State Building is located at Fifth and 34th Avenues. For 40 years after it was constructed, it held the record for being the largest skyscraper in the world. The building has starred in over 90 movies, and it remains one of New York City’s most popular tourist attractions. However, what most people do not know are the brave men behind the construction of the building that costs about USD40.5 millions. One of them might be our grandfathers. We should be proud of them. Below are the photos of the fearless men behind the construction of the magnificent Empire States Building.
