NEW YORK, May 01, 2021 — The World’s Most Famous Building, the Empire State Building (ESB), celebrates its 90th anniversary on May 1, 2021.

“The Empire State Building, the international icon and symbol of dreams, was a record-breaker and trendsetter 90 years ago,” said Anthony E. Malkin, chairman, president, and CEO of Empire State Realty Trust. “Today, she is fully modernized for the 21st century, a world leader in energy efficiency retrofits in the built environment, indoor environmental quality, and on building health practices.”

“Since we first opened our doors 90 years ago, the Empire State Building Observatory has been the must-visit for travelers from around the world,” said Jean-Yves Ghazi, president of the Observatory. “We’ve welcomed everyone from the Queen of England to the Queen of Christmas (Mariah Carey) through our doors, and our most important visitors are our Observatory guests from around the world who today visit our brand new, $165 million recreation of our entire experience. With New York reopened as of July 1, we look forward to visits from our fans near and far who can safely travel to celebrate this important anniversary.”

• Brand-New Offerings for Visitors

To mark 90 years, the Empire State Building will kick off a wealth of new offerings, with more announcements throughout the year-long festivities.

• A Reimagined Guest Experience

Since its construction, the Empire State Building has taken pride in its status as the World’s Most Famous Building - an international symbol of technology, imagination, and ambition. Recent renovations and a reimagined visitor experience serve as examples for other buildings and attractions across the globe.

“Over the past 90 years, the Empire State Building has been the undisputed landmark of the New York City skyline, with its iconic tower lights that shine as a symbol of hope, strength, and perseverance,” said Mr. Malkin. “We will continue to innovate and push boundaries in technology, sustainability, and tourism to ensure that the Empire State Building remains America’s Favorite Building for the next 90 years as well.”

The Empire State Building, “The World’s Most Famous Building,” is a 102-story Art Deco skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan in New York City. Empire State Realty Trust, Inc owns it. The $165 million reimagination of the Empire State Building Observatory Experience creates an all-new experience with a dedicated guest entrance, an interactive museum with nine galleries, and a redesigned 102nd Floor Observatory with floor-to-ceiling windows. The journey to the world-famous 86th Floor Observatory, the only 360-degree, open-air Observatory with views of New York and beyond, orients visitors for their entire New York City experience and covers everything from the building’s iconic history to its current place in pop culture. Officially opened on May 1, 1931, and now celebrating its 90th anniversary year, the Empire State Building welcomes more than 4 million annual visitors from around the world.
