"The Most Beautiful Suicide" - On May 1st, 1947, 23-year-old Evelyn McHale stood on the 86th floor of the observation deck of the Empire State Building and leapt to her death. Her body landed on a UN limousine that was parked on a curb and minutes after her death, photography student, Robert Wiles, photographed Evelyn's body, the photo ran in LIFE magazine's May 12th, 1947 issue.

‘Construction of the Empire State Building was one of the most remarkable feats of the 20th century. It took only 410 days to build, by 3,400 workers, many of them desperate for work at the height of the Depression. The work force was made up largely of immigrants, along with hundreds of Mohawk Indian iron workers.’ 1931
