Hardcover (no d.j.)
Gini Holland (au). This book for young people tells the extraordinary story of the world’s most famous skyscraper. Readers will learn how it came to be built -- conceived in the Roaring Twenties, when space was at a premium in New York City -- & of the architectural innovation & teamwork that made its construction a reality. Did you know that during construction the framework of the Empire State Building went up at a rate of four & a half stories each week? And, from the the 102nd floor, you can see for as far as 80 miles -- on a clear day. Readers will find out about urban America in the early 20th century: what caused N.Y. City to boom & then crash, & what difference did this make to the future of the Empire State Building? Color & black & white photos.
