new york state of mind

The Empire State building was originally supposed to be a blimp port in the sky. A mooring was built on what is now the base of the television tower. The idea was that passengers could fly directly into Manhattan, getting off at the ESB, instead of landing in one of the boroughs or New Jersey. Only one blimp ever successfully docked at the Empire State Building, and that was only for three minutes.
