"Each day over 4,000 people take the elevator up to the observatory of the Empire State Building to catch a minute of glory. What almost none of them have known -- until now -- is just how many people have fought to own outright the crown jewel beneath them, and the chaos that these trophy hunters have caused." (2001)
