The Boston Molasses Disaster, also known as the Great Molasses Flood and the Great Boston Molasses Tragedy, occurred on January 15, 1919, in the North End neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts in the United States. A large molasses storage tank burst, and a wave of molasses rushed through the streets at an estimated 35 mph (56 km/h), killing 21 and injuring 150. The event has entered local folklore, and residents claim that on hot summer days, the area still smells of molasses.

Yes, the Empire State Building was designed with a dock on top of its spire, but, no, it was never used -- this is a composite of two photographs. constant high winds around the building made it an extremely dangerous manoeuvre and disembarking passengers would have to climb down a swinging ladder to an exposed catwalk to get to safety. No passenger dirigibles ever moored there. (One small blimp tied up long enough to lower a bundle of papers by rope.)
