23 - According to the Empire State Building’s website, the tall New Yorker receives an electric shock from above approximately 23 times each year. The Empire State Building is so attractive, in fact, that if you happen to visit the top of it during stormy weather, you might experience static electricity. And don’t be shocked if a kiss between you and your partner offers an extra spark. In 2016, two bolts of lightning struck the same spot on the building in quick succession, which was quite an anomaly, even for one of America’s tallest buildings.
