It then also became the second tallest skyscraper in the Americas (surpassed only by Chicago's landmark Sears Tower-Willis Tower) and the 11th tallest in the world. One can take the elevator all the way to the top observation floor and catch a glimpse of amazing views of New York and New Jersey as far as the eye can see. The architecture is in the classic style of Art Deco so prevalent of the 1930's. It now again goes back to the second tallest building in NYC being surpassed by the Freedom Tower at the old site of the World Trade Center.
