Fun Fact #1
For decades, the title of “tallest building in the world” switched hands almost 10 times, all the while remaining in Manhattan, before settling on the Empire State Building, which retained the title for decades to come. It was finally overtaken by One World Trade Center in 1970.
Fun Fact #2
The Bayonne Bridge is almost identical to the world-famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, but it is actually two feet longer. Completed a few months beforehand, the Bayonne Bridge was the world's longest steel arch bridge. Rumor has it that the only reason for those two extra feet was to beat the Australians.
Fun Fact #3
The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is so long, 4,260 feet to be exact, that the towers on either end were built a few inches out of parallel to accommodate for the curvature of the earth.
Fun Fact #4
Why are New York Yellow Cabs yellow? Because John Hertz, the company's founder, read a study that concluded yellow was the easiest color for the eye to spot.
Fun Fact #5
The Holland Tunnel, which connects NYC with New Jersey, was completed in 1927 and is one of the first ventilated tunnels in the world. The ventilation system was needed to clear out vehicle exhaust and carbon monoxide generated by the automobiles passing through. The Holland Tunnel is a designated National Historic Landmark. Almost 35 million vehicles pass through the Holland Tunnel each year.
