Empire State Building

New York, New York, USA

The iconic Empire State Building’s art deco style is typical of pre–World War II architecture in New York. The Empire State Building’s facade is covered with Indiana limestone panels and features 200,000 cubic feet (5,700 m3) of limestone and granite, ten million bricks and 730 short tons (650 long tons) of aluminum and stainless steel. The Empire State Building also contains 6,514 windows, including Kawneer’s TR-9000 Windows and 190/350/500 Standard Entrances.
