The Empire State Building is 1,250 feet tall, with a 204-foot TV tower that makes the total height 1,454 feet. The building has 86 floors of office space, as well as a tower and two sub-basements, which brings the total to approximately 102 stories tall.

The lobby is a beautiful entrance of grey marble from various places in Europe, stainless steel, and glass. It features an exhibit of "The Eight Wonders of the World", opened in 1963. These eight illuminated paintings show the Seven Ancient Wonders, with the Eighth being the Empire State Building. At the rear of the lobby is a black granite wall with an image of the building inlaid in aluminum, superimposed over a map of New York state. In front of it is a heavy information desk.

Admission is charged for visitors to go to the observatory on the 86th floor, and tickets are available for a few dollars at the desk in the lobby. The observatory itself has a glass-enclosed area that is temperature controlled, as well as an outdoor promenade which goes around all four sides of the building. From this altitude, when the sky is clear, visitors can see close to 40 miles in the distance.
