  • The pier where titanic was set to arrive at is a multi-storey driving range now
  • Only 5 people died making the Empire State Building, 2 by falling and one had his face removed by a lift. Normally back then, the expected death rate was 1 death per floor built.
  • It took just 14 months to build.
  • Zeppelin dock at the top turned out to be far too windy to be usable.
  • On completion it was 6 inches shorter than planned because of the foundations compressing.
  • I bought a photo of myself. Haw Haw.
  • All the Broadway stage hands are on strike, so no shows are on. And they're all picketing. Lucky I'm too disorganised to have got tickets really.
