Above, worker on Empire State Building, signaling the hookman in 1931 (photograph by Lewis Wickes Hine / NYPL). This Art Deco skyscraper was the tallest building in the world until 1970. It was constructed at dizzy speed by more than 3 thousand workers, some died during construction. As we can seen in the photograph, security was a luxury.
