The Empire State Building

Once the world's tallest building, the iconic art deco Empire State Building, presides over midtown Manhattan like a proud big brother. After checking out the lobby's famous 23-karat gold celestial ceiling mural, whiz up the 1464-foot tower to the dizzying observation decks on the 86th and 102 floors for a birds eye view of the shimmering city. <i>(350 Fifth Avenue, esbnyc.com)</i>
