Model Answer:
The Empire State Building in New York City is the tallest building that I have seen so far. It was once the tallest building in the world, but now this title belongs to Burj Khalifa in Abu Dhabi. The Empire State Building's magnificent and prominent presence amazed me to a great extent. When I first laid my eyes on this majestic structure, I could not believe what I was seeing. It looked like a vertical city to me. I'd like to thank you for the opportunity to let me talk about this gigantic and artistic structure of wonder and architectural feat.

The Empire State Building is a 102-story skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, United States. It was designed by Shreve, Lamb & Harmon and built from 1930 to 1931 in the USA. 

I saw this impressive building approximately four years ago when I went to New York City to participate in a training programme. The training was arranged by our office, and interestingly, it was held on the 68th floor of this massive building. As I later learned, this building is 1472 feet high and has one hundred and two floors. It remained the tallest building in the world for nearly four decades, so it has to be super tall!

The Empire State Building's Art Deco architecture, remarkable height, and observation decks have made it a popular attraction. Around four million tourists from around the world annually visit the building's observatories. The Empire State Building is an American cultural icon. It is said that the Empire State Building is a city within a city. It provides every kind of service to its around 20 thousand tenants. The building has restaurants, banks, theatres, shops, and many other facilities for people. Once you are inside it, you'll find every amenities and product you can think of.
