The Empire State Building

and here is the script :

One of the world’s most famous skyscrapers is easily recognized by its strong, slender ascent into the NY sky. Opened in 1931, this 1,450 feet icon is currently the ninth tallest building in the world. The landmark soars more than a quarter mile into the Manhattan atmosphere.

Observation decks are on the 86th and 102nd floors. The lower deck is probably the better spot for the best views. On clear days, enjoy an amazing 80-mile visibility.

In the lobby, special concerts and art exhibits are offered at various times throughout the year. Hour and rates vary so be sure to check for specific information.
