Workers just finished a massive $165 million renovation of the Empire State Building. On the newly renovated 80th floor, new kiosks are part of the updated experience for visitors, as they go from one bank of elevators to another.
"CBS This Morning" got to visit parts of the building that most visitors never see. Co-hosts Gayle King, Anthony Mason and Tony Dokoupil take you on a journey to uncover its secrets, from dozens of feet underground to way up to the 104th-and-half floor.
The Empire State Building was once the tallest structure on earth. But eventually, architects and engineers in the U.S. and other countries figured out ways to take construction to even greater heights.
