1. The Empire State Building Marker
Inscription.  The Empire State Building, once the tallest in the world, is today the city's quintessential landmark. Its name and profile are familiar the world over. Completed in 1931, the Empire State Building was the final and most celebrated product of the skyscraper frenzy of the 1920's. Its slender, modernistic silhouette is the finest work of architect William Lamb of Shreve, Lamb & Harmon.
 
Erected 1988 by New York Landmarks Preservation Foundation.
