1931 - By the time he was merely 8 years old, on May 1st, the Empire State Building opened in New York City. At 1,454 feet (including the roof and antenna), it was the tallest building in the world until the World Trade Center's North Tower was built in 1970. (It is now the 34th tallest.) Opening at the beginning of the Great Depression, most of the offices in the Empire State Building remained unoccupied for years and the observation deck was an equal source of revenue and kept the building profitable.

The disaster was so shocking that it replaced World War II in the headlines and lead to reforms in safety standards and codes.

1943 - At the age of 20 years old, Daren was alive when on March 31st, the Broadway musical Oklahoma! opened.
