One of the most famous American landmarks and tourist attractions, the Empire State Building was located in New York City.

It was situated on 33rd Street in Manhattan. (COMIC: Spiral Staircase)

In 1930, just prior to the building's completion, the Cult of Skaro occupied one floor of the building. They consulted with construction manager Mr Diagoras, who obeyed their orders willingly, and informed him of their plans. (TV: Daleks in Manhattan) They took Dalekanium plates taken from the outer casing of Dalek Thay and attached them to the top of the Empire State Building. These would attract gamma radiation and activate the Dalek DNA in the humans who had been abducted, bringing to life an army of human-Daleks. The Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones stopped the Cult's plans. (TV: Evolution of the Daleks)

In 1966, the dimwitted American tourist Morton Dill observed the First Doctor, Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright and Vicki Pallister landing in the Doctor's TARDIS on the observation deck at the top of the Empire State Building, as they attempted to escape the Dalek time machine. The Daleks also landed there for a moment before continuing their chase of the Doctor. (TV: The Chase)

The spire of the Empire State Building, despite being in the path of the atmospheric-cleaning fire in 2009 created by the Doctor to avert the Sontaran invasion of Earth, was not harmed. (TV: The Poison Sky)

The building was the first in Manhattan to lose its power during the attempted Vykoid takeover of the city in 2010. (PROSE: The Forgotten Army)

During the early 21st century, a quantum harvester merged with Dorothy Bell. Together, they extended the height of the building by 20 storeys. After more recent buildings like the Freedom Tower were built, she felt the Empire State Building was not tall enough. (COMIC: Spiral Staircase)

The Empire State Building was among the Earth cultural items the Threshold stole and took to the town of Wormwood on the Moon. (COMIC: Wormwood)
