Ben Watts Says

The Empire State Building is my favorite landmark in the city because it is iconic New York. Day or night, it always reminds you that New York City is the best city in the world—by a long stretch. Who needs the tallest building, when you have the most famous? Every day when I walk out of my building, I look up to see it.
