How do I obtain a property release of Empire State Building or Sydney Opera House?
According to the Getty site, if it's one building, you need a release. If it's a collection of buildings, no release is required.
Make sure to get a few buildings in the shot, and then releases are not a worry.
Can you see the empire state building from parts of Connecticut?
The best place to view the Empire State Building, will be in parts of New Jersey, especially along the Hudson River from Fort Lee to Bayonne.
If you want to a good view of the ESB, I would recommend going to the Lincoln Harbor ferry terminal in Weehawken.
I hope this information is very helpful.
What restaurant in the Empire State Building is closest to the roof?
There are no restaurants in the Empire State building like that. All the restaurants are on the ground floor. There are none close to the roof at all. You are probably thinking of another building--Rockefeller perhaps which had the Rainbow Room and the Rainbow Grill but is now closed.
