When completed in 1931, the 102-story Empire State Building was the world’s tallest building. Today at 1,454 feet, it’s the nation’s third tallest building and, in 2007, was voted “America’s favorite architecture” in a poll conducted by the American Institute of Architects. The landmark edifice displays colored lights throughout the year to mark special events and holidays, including Valentine’s Day, when the skyscraper is illuminated in red, pink and white. The tower has hosted weddings every Valentine’s Day since 1994.
