Empire State Building under Construction

The Empire State Building, in New York City, was once the tallest building in the world. This image depicts the famous landmark when it was about three-quarters finished.

Lewis Wickes Hine took this photograph in 1931. It is one of at least 47 pictures he took of workers—and the famous New York City landmark itself—as the building came into existence.

Now part of "The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs: Photography Collection," at the New York Public Library, the photo is also part of the "Photographs of the Empire State Building under Construction" collection.
