At the Empire State Building's location at 34th Street and Fifth Avenue, street level is about 50 feet above sea level. All 102 floors from the first up are thus above sea level, as are the two basement levels. The foundation descends for 55 feet, so the very lowest part of the structure seems to be just below sea level.

Hundreds and hundreds of birds flew into the Empire State Building. They were killed and fell to the street below. Possibly an omen to the future?

well people say to me its true. Because it goes as fast as a bullet. So i think so.

The air resistance would slow it down so much that it probably wouldn't even leave a mark on the sidewalk. The popular myth that a penny dropped from the Empire State Building could kill someone is just that: a myth. See the Related Question below for more details.

Yes, since it's completion in 1931 about 40 people have jumped to their deaths off the Empire State Building (most of those during the 1940s). One woman jumped in 1979 only to land one floor below, she survived but broke her hip. The most recent jumper was in 2010.

The Empire State Building is composed of multiple shapes. The picture below should help. It has a wider base but is essentially a set of rectangular prisms going up the building. Toward the upper floors there are a pair of rectangular prisms with rounded corners. I suppose these might technically be octagonal prisms (8 sides), I'm not sure. Then there is a set of levels that are square then a cylinder on top. The absolute tippy-top is a hemi-sphere (half sphere).
