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.

In 1959, when she was 60 years old, on August 8th, Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States. The US flag was changed to show 50 stars.
