At 102 floors high and 381 meters there is only one other building in the whole of New York City that is taller than it.
- One World Trade Center. Currently in its final construction stages, One World Trade Center will be one of the largest buildings in the world and certainly one of the tallest. At a staggering height of 541m with 104 floors, this modern glass structure has some of the most amazing observation decks in the whole of New York City. On April 30, 2012 it became the highest building in the whole of New York City. With efforts on green construction, ongoing conservation and amazingly strong construction, security and safety One World Trade Center is the ultimate symbol of a city rebuilding in the wake of tragedy.
- Chrysler Building. Built at roughly the same time as the Empire state building, this is the tallest brick building in the entire world. The Chrysler building is known for its fantastic tapered roof with a spire which is illuminated at night. You will often see this building in photos of New York as it is one of the most iconic buildings in the city.
