What To Do In NYC: Empire, The Store

After you reach the top, make your trip last with a unique Empire State Building keepsake.

Expect to find colorful ESB-branded apparel, crystal glassware, toys, history and coffee table books, holiday ornaments and more. But most importantly, expect to take home something that signifies the extraordinary building's past, present and future as a 21st century icon, architectural leader, international destination and trendsetter.

Empire: The Store is open seven days a week, from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m.
