Brave Men Building the Trump Tower (1930)

Brave Men Building the Bank of Manhattan Trust building (now Trump Tower) which was completed in 1930.

In this Pathe News clip, men can be seen without safety ropes, precariously balancing on girders nearly 1000ft off the ground. Not a job for someone who suffers from vertigo!

The caption reads: "Final steelwork completed on *Bank of Manhattan*,
world's highest building." Not the Empire State Building. It was
completed in 1930.

The building of an icon:

*Brave Men Building the Empire State Building (1930). It took 410 days to
build, 3400 workers to help construct, 5 lost their lives and for 40 years
it stood as the world's tallest building. It opened in May 1931 during the
Great Depression. However, due to its poor location at the time, many of
the offices stood empty and for 20years it was dubbed the Empty State

Автор M Williams (7 месяцев)
This is mislabeled. It is not the Empire State Bldg. but instead the bank
of Manhattan Bldg. a forerunner to today's Chase ( Manhattan ) Bank. It is
not even in the same area as the Empire State which is in midtown. I love
when the video itself tells you what it is and still some rube mislabels it

I thought there would have been a greater death toll of workers. Obviously
skill played a huge role. I admire steel workers especially in this era.
They didn't even have hard hats.

*Construyendo el Empire State Building (1930)*

Se tardaron 410 días en construirlo, con 3.400 trabajadores de los que 5
perdieron la vida en accidentes.

Se inauguró en Mayo de 1931 durante la Gran Depresión, lo que unido a una
mala localización provocó que muchas de sus oficinas permanecieran vacías
durante más de 20 años, con lo que el edificio se ganó el apodo de *Empty
State Building*

British Pathe, that is not the Empire State Building--it is the Bank of
Manhattan Trust building (now Trump Tower) which was completed in 1930. You
can tell because the windows are two-five-two across unlike the Empire
which has windows straight across with no spaces in between, and it's not
the structure of the Empire. The tiers at the top are different. It was the
tallest building until the Empire was completed in 1931. It surpassed the
Chrysler building (which you can see in the background). Besides the fact
that it says it in the beginning, it is obvious that it is not the Empire.
You can check Google images and Wikipedia has photos and explanations. It
too had a plane fly into it just as the Empire had the same.

Haha ok let's explain the joke: Those workers must have had lots of balls
(ie courage) He was making a joke about them having so much balls that the
building might have collaped under the weight of it.
