It took just under a year to complete my construction, opening on April 11th 1931. at a cost of $41 million. I am 1,454 feet in heigh, have 6,500 windows and 73 elevators.

I am built almost entirely from iron and limestone, and was designed by William F. Lamb, and built by The Starrett Brothers and Eken construction company.

My name is derived from the city in which I stand. I have 85 stories, with the another 16 designed in the Art Deco fashion topped of with an observatory on the 102 floor and a 203 foot broadcasting antenna.

I am the second largest single office complex in America, after the Pentagon. My broadcasting antenna was originally designed to be a mooring mast for dirigibles or airships. In 1945 a B25 Mitchell bomber crashed into me in July of 1945 due to thick fog.

Due to the 9/11 attacks I once again became the tallest building in the city You'll probably know me better from my film appearances, The Producers 1968, Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief 2010, and most notably the 1933 film King Kong. Who or What am I ?
