Summary
At a time when American dreams were in short supply, an iconic engineering marvel rose up through the New York City skyline and inspired a nation. This documentary brings you the remarkable story behind the world-renowned Empire State Building. Planned during the 1920's, construction on what would become the world's tallest man-made structure was almost grounded by the Great Depression. In spite of the country's economic troubles, intrepid construction workers prevailed, carefully assembling the building's magnificent steel frame at an astonishing pace of four-and-a-half stories per week. In just over a year the miraculous structure was finished, and a monumental symbol of the indomitable American spirit was forever etched into the New York City landscape
