Empire State Building heads to Wall Street

Members of the public are to be given the opportunity to own a small part of one of New York's most iconic buildings.

The current owners of the Empire State Building are planning to sell shares of the holding company in an initial public offering.

Around 71.5 million shares will be offered at a price of between $13 and $15 (£8 - £9) each.
