Region –Today is Tuesday, May 1, the 122nd day of 2012.

The C.A. six tips of the day for May 1On this day in 1931, the Empire State Building in New York City was formally dedicated. Until the World Trade Center was built in 1972, the Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world. It is 102 stories and 1,250 feet high (1,454 feet to the top of the lightning rod.) The building was constructed ahead of schedule, in just over a year, and at a cost of $40 million, which was under budget.
