“The General Motors Building, erected the year before on the trapezoidal block bounded by Broadway and Eighth Avenue between Fifty-seventh and Fifty-eighth Streets, however, was an important commission for them, one that won them a secure place in architectural history.”
John Tauranac, The Empire State Building: The Making of a Landmark

“The Fifth Avenue Association awarded the Empire State Building its gold medal for design, which was “architecturally excellent from top to bottom.”
John Tauranac, The Empire State Building: The Making of a Landmark

“In 1955, the American Society of Civil Engineers selected the Empire State Building as one of the seven greatest engineering achievements in America’s history—the only wonder conceived, financed, owned, and managed by private industry.3”
