Lightning strikes the antenna on the top of the Empire State Building in New York City during a summer thunderstorm on Thursday, July 26, 2012. The Empire State Building, which is struck by lightning an average of just under 100 times annually, was illuminated in colors of various nations in celebration of the 2012 London Olympics.

Top of the Empire State Building The iconic Empire State Building soars more than a quarter of a mile into the air. Should you and your honey enjoy major heights, head to the Observatory on the 86th floor, which gives you panoramic views of NYC. The Observatory has been chronicled in many movies including an "Affair to Remember," in which Cary Grant waited in vain for Deborah Kerr, as well as in "Sleepless in Seattle."
