Some interesting facts about the Empire State:
- It took eleven months to complete the building. At that rate, it took a day to complete a floor. Amazing right? I wonder how long it would take in Nigeria *side eye*
- William Lamb based the design of the ESB on the outline of a pencil *yup, I know*
- The ESB is illuminated in various colours to celebrate holidays and special events. There was one for Valentine's Day, Easter, New Years Eve, 4th of July, Frank Sinatra, the Golden Jubilee, Eid al Fitr and so many more.
- Because of the curvature of the earth, sunrise occurs about half an hour earlier at the top of the building than at street level. Sunset occurs about a half hour later *how cool is that*
