More information about Final Jeopardy:
While the specific article in the New Yorker is behind a paywall, the Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world when it was completed in 1931 (a title it no longer holds). Due to its completion during the Great Depression, it took until the 1950s before it started making money. In its early years, it was derisively called the Empty State Building.
The spire on top, which eventually housed a radio antenna for broadcasting purposes, was originally suposed to be used as a mast for mooring dirigibles.
