帝国大厦 (The Empire State Building) 开放了

如果你看过「金刚」这部电影,你或许会记得这只巨猿爬的那栋建筑物。帝国大厦在193151日正式对外开放。贺柏特.胡佛 (Herbert Hoover) 总统在华盛顿特区按下启动钮之后,马上就有许多灯光照向这栋世界最高的摩天大楼。在那之前,世界最高的建筑物是793英尺高的沃尔沃夫大楼 (Woolworth Building) 。现在美国最高的大楼是位在芝加哥有110层楼高的西尔斯百货公司大楼 (Sears Tower)

If you have ever seen the movie "King Kong," you may remember the building that the giant ape climbs. The Empire State Building officially opened on this day in history, May 1, 1931. President Herbert Hoover pressed a button in Washington, D.C., and on came the lights in the world's tallest skyscraper. Before that, the tallest was the Woolworth Building at only 793 feet. Now, the tallest building in the United States is the 110-story Sears Tower in Chicago.
