I’ve never been to the top of the Empire State Building, but passed by it several times. Every time the building reminded me of the Daleks, a fictional extraterrestrial race in Doctor Who. In the story, the Empire State Building was actually built under the supervision of the Daleks, who later used the building as sort of energy amplifier to evolve their race to be “more human”. Maybe later I should go into the building and learn its real history. 🙂
