Empire state of mind guitar chords

New York is widely known by the nickname “Empire State”, and its effects can be seen throughout the state. Manhattan’s Empire State Building opened in 1931 and was the world’s tallest building until the completion of the north tower of the World Trade Center in 1970. Following the September 11 attacks, the Empire State Building once again became the tallest building in Manhattan until One World Trade Center claimed the title in April 2012. 1939 New York World’s Fair dubbed the span between the Trylon and N. Y. State Exhibit as The Empire State Bridge. The main offices of state government are located at the Empire State Plaza (ESP) in Albany, the state capital. Its most iconic structure is the Erastus Corning Tower, the tallest building in New York outside of New York City. The nickname also led to the state of Georgia becoming known as the “Empire State of the South” during the antebellum period before the American Civil War. During this time, Georgia had the second-largest land area of any state east of the Mississippi River, and it was rapidly industrializing.
