ITTN interviews Nicole Bernicker from the iconic Empire State Building Observatory to find out all about the newly refurbished and redesigned visitor experience and how to snap a selfie with one of the building’s most famous characters.
The Iconic Empire State Building
This building was constructed during the Great Depression in just 14 months – a monumental achievement by any standard. There is a chance to experience the Empire State building in a bigger and even better way. In 2022, the Empire State Building was awarded the number one attraction in the USA for travellers to visit and third in the world overall, according to Tripadvisor. In 2019, an extensive update costing $165m was completed. This offers a better experience to travellers including time ticketing and a new lobby for observation visitors. There is a new interactive experience to learn about the history, sustainability efforts, and a snapshot of the iconic movie moments captured at the Empire State Building.
