Frequently, however, you will be given misinformation by well-meaning but ill-informed people, or you will simply be met by a chorus of "I don't knows.

I bought this as I live 5 blocks from the Empire State and so wanted a "souvenir" of my time living in the centre of Manhattan - my apartment building was built in 2008 and is not in this book. Probably best spending your money and buying the up to date version in the tourist shop in the Empire State Building, this version is 10 years out of date and Manhattan has changed a lot in that time!

There are a lot of books available about the ESB, its history, its construction and its significance. However, John Tauranac is considered an expert and his work is one that must be in the library of every serious collector of Empire State Building volumes. His scholarly and historic views give a depth and perspective to the building and surrounding New York City in a way that is unmatched in other books that I've seen. I highly recommend this item!

This informative book is chock-a-block full of photos taken from every compass direction from the top of the Empire State Building Observatory. The buildings in the photos are labeled in extensive detail and the author obviously went to great pains to compile this indispensable resource for anyone with a keen interest in the Manhattan skyline. It would be really nice if John Tauranac would update this book of his every five years or so, as the New York City skyline is constantly evolving with new buildings going up all the time.
