Building Provides Mooring Masts for Zeps
NEW YORKERS may soon become accustomed to the sight of giant lighter-than-air liners moored to the tops of downtown skyscrapers, for the Empire State Building, now under construction at 34th Street and Fifth Avenue, when completed will be topped by a mooring mast of the latest type.
This new building, which will rise to a height of 1100 feet will top the Eiffel Tower of Paris by 174 feet and will be the tallest structure in the world. It is planned to make this building the western terminal of trans-Atlantic airships.
