Lunch atop a Skyscraper is a famous black-and-white photograph taken during construction of the RCA Building (renamed the GE Building in 1986) at Rockefeller Center in New York City, United States. Below is a picture of construction workers who recreated the classic photo in 2011 by posing on a girder 800ft above London.
Eleven men eating lunch, seated on a girder with their feet dangling hundreds of feet above the New York City streets. Charles C. Ebbets took the photo on September 29, 1932 on the 69th floor of the RCA Building during the last months of construction.
