Empirre State Building: New York icon survives Great Depression, giant ape





Born in the Great Depression, it has weathered economic hardship, world war, labor strikes, murder, terrorist fears, and even a plane crash.

The Empire State Building, once the tallest building in the world and again the tallest in New York City, is turning 75 years old on Monday.

A yearlong celebration is planned for the building, consisting mainly of monthly light shows, according to Lydia Ruth, spokeswoman for the corporation that runs the building.
