The Empire State Building is one New York attraction you should not be proud you missed. The fact that it's struck by lightning nearly 100 times per year should be enough to send you to the 86th story, and if it isn't, how about the amazing views? To avoid the throngs of people who don't understand how New York works, go during the fall season and buy your tickets at esbnyc.org. The last elevator to the top is at 11:15 p.m.
