The Empire State Building in New York City is probably the most famous building in America, a not only because of King Kong! When it was being built around 70 years ago, 3, 500 workers were employed on its site. One of them was 16-year-old Joe Carbonellli, whose job was to carry drinking water up to the other workers. Joe's story explains how the world's tallest skyscraper was built in only 18 months, a tower 1, 250 feet high with 102 floors. This book, translated from the German edition, is in the Adventures in ArchitectureA series that opens up the world of architecture to children of all ages, by seeking answers to the Astory' behind the building.
