King Kong Has No Plans To Return To The Empire State Building

From Gothamist

I have a vivid memory of looking up at the Empire State Building when I was younger and seeing King Kong grasping onto the top, hovering over the busy Manhattan streets. It was 1983, and an inflatable ape was placed on the side of the building in commemoration of the 50th year anniversary of the original film's debut. It was really cool, and could even be seen from New Jersey (as evidenced in this photograph).

At the time, Lime Contracting—who were completing the exterior renovation of the building—was asked by owner Harry Helmsley to participate in "King Kong's 50th Anniversary Return to the Empire State Building." They write, "This turned out to be the largest building mounted balloon in the world... he was a whopping 82 feet high." Along with the big balloon, the lobby had memorabilia on display, as well as a "video disc player" that played the scene of King Kong climbing the building in the movie.
