“The Empire State where Dylan lived**- The Empire State Building was, for the longest time, the tallest building in the world. It was built in the 1920s and is still an impressive site. It is located at 32nd-34th between 5th and 6th Avenues in Manhattan. You can go up to the 102nd floor for a great view of the city. Arrive early or go late because the lines to the elevators can be long. You can always take the ‘King Kong’ route and climb up the outside of the building to get to the top but it is dangerous and illegal. Dylan, it is believed, refers to the musician Bob Dylan. TMBG sing ‘Dylan’ because JF misheard the lyric when covering the song and found out what the actual lyrics were after FS was recorded and released.
