Visit the Art Deco The Gym At Carew Tower, part of the National Register of Historic Places and for 80 years the city's tallest building. Built in 1930, it towered over the town for the next eight decades at a height of 175 m (574 ft), and also served as an inspiration for the Empire State Building in New York City. Make your way up 49 stories to the observation platform at the top. From there, enjoy sweeping views over the cityscape and river around you. Afterward, wander the building and browse its assortment of shops and eateries, and don't forget to grab a city souvenir from the gift shop on your way out.
