- The tower has 3 levels, with restaurants on the first and second floors.
- You can climb the stairs up to the first and second levels, or there’s an elevator that goes to all three floors.
- The tower was the world’s tallest building for four decades, until it was surpassed by New York’s Chrysler Building in 1930.
