Towering over Manhattan's skyscrapers, the Empire State Building is a landmark in New York and has been featured in many films and TV shows. The observation deck on the top floor, accessible by high-speed elevators, offers a panoramic view of New York's cityscape, taking in views of both the Hudson River and the East River. The view is even more magnificent at sunset and particularly charming inundated in lights at nightfall. The Empire State Building offers multimedia devices as guidance, introducing New York's major tourist attractions in each direction. Telescopes mounted on the observation deck provide an even better view.
