1931 - At the age of 25 years old, Homer was alive when on May 1st, the Empire State Building opened in New York City.

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.
