A Zeppelin Never Docked On The Empire State BuildingS

Last in this week's series of gloomy New York panoramas, this image is a still from Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow, a movie remarkable (only) for its painstaking special effects. The spire of Empire State Building, now festooned with communications antennae, was originally designed with a docking port for dirigibles, a fantastic conceit only realized in Sky Captain's alternate New York.
