Photo, Film & Video Shoots

The Empire State Building receives requests to use its trademarked image in films and photo shoots throughout the year.

We will consider requests that:

  • Showcase ESB positively, respectfully and responsibly
  • Feature ESB, and not just views/skyline shots from its Observatory

Based on the volume of requests, responses may take up to two weeks. Requests are subject to licensing and location fees and agreements.
