      Charles C. Ebbets: Lunch atop the Empire State Building in construction, New York, ca. 1932 I love this picture!

      Lunch atop a Skyscraper is one of the most recognizable photos of the 20th century. The 1932 photo shows 11 construction workers taking a lunch break on a girder 850 feet above New York City. A second photo from the same shoot shows four of the men sleeping on the beam. The images are iconic and epic, but may not be as candid as they seem. The photos were reportedly staged as part of a promotional effort for the Rockefeller Center.

      Charles Ebbets' depiction of "Lunch atop a Skyscraper" has become synonymous with the booming construction era in New York City. Ebbets climbed atop Rockefeller Center along with the construction workers to snap this iconic photo on Sept. 29, 1932. There is some uncertainty about who took this picture so it might be attributed to an unknown photographer. This copy came from the NY Daily News.
