Sears Tower not the Wold Trade Towers

As a correction, the Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world until the Sears Tower in Chicago Illinois was completed in 1973. The Sears Tower was the tallest building in the world, surpassing the World Trade Center towers in New York, and it held this rank for nearly 25 years. The Sears Tower (now called the Willis Tower) is the tallest building in the United States and the seventh-tallest freestanding structure in the world.

The Empire State Building is truly a site to behold. Growing up I was fascinated with this symbol of American power and wasn't able until recently moving to the East Coast was able to not only see it but climb the stairs, making the view even more rewarding...a must experience for all New Yorkers and tourists alike.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
