Empire State Building is a Dowager Popular with Celebrities

If you’re heading to New York City, stopping by the place visited by Pierce Brosnan, Mariah Carey, Fidel Castro, the acrobats from Cirque du Soleil, Bill Clinton, Tom Cruise, Celine Dion, Roger Federer, Prince Andrew the Duke of York, Queen Elizabeth II and many others can only be a good thing.

And since that place is New York’s iconic Empire State Building, which celebrated its 80th birthday in 2011, your visit will be more than welcome.

Whether you’re wearing mucklucks or tank tops, whether Central Park’s leaves are changing or the many tourist landmarks are putting out Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas decor, there is always a deal available at one of these New York City’s family-friendly hotels we recommend.

And allow enough time to see the many New York City family attractions that the discount attraction company, CityPass, has in store.

Many thanks to them for creating this fun infographic about the Empire State Building and its history.
