Enjoying the View

A family admires the view of Lower Manhattan's skyline from the 80th floor of the iconic Empire State Building, which was the tallest building in the world until 1970. One World Trade Center, the highest tower in the background, has been the tallest building in North America since 2013 and is currently the the sixth-tallest building in the world.
