The Empire State Building was finished in 1931, about 90 years ago
The Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world, from 1931 until 1971, where it was passed by the World Trade Center that later on sadly got demolished by the two planes on 9-1-1.
Almost the same happened to The Empire State Building. On the 28th July 1945 the Empire State Building was hit by a plane, by an accident, on a foggy day.
The building did not collapse because of its strong frame, made of steel. One of the engines from the plane flew through the building, on the 79th floor.
Eleven people in the building, and three on the plane, died, while another 26 people got hurt, mostly because of burn.
