2.This is the Empire State Building. The building’s distinctive Art Deco spire was originally designed to be a mooring mast and depot for dirigibles. The

102nd floor was originally a landing platform with a dirigible gangplank. A particular elevator, traveling between the 86th and 102nd floors, was supposed to

transport passengers after they checked in at the observation deck on the 86th floor. However, the idea proved to be impractical and dangerous after a few

attempts with airships, due to the powerful updrafts caused by the size of the building itself. A large broadcast tower was added to the top of the spire in

1953.
