Watermelon at Independence Park , a beauty contest, and Lance looks for nimble-fingered women workers.
From Wikipedia: July 28, 1945 a B-25 bomber, piloted in thick fog over New York City, crashed into the Empire State Building. The accident did not compromise the building's structural integrity, but it did cause fourteen deaths (three crewmen and eleven people in the building) and damage estimated at $1,000,000 ($13,000,000 in 2014 dollars).
