Poll: The Empire State Movies

The Empire State is the official nickname of New York. New York is nicknamed "The Empire State" for its national and global significance. Today people associate the nickname with the Empire State Building, but the nickname came first. The actual origin of New York's nickname is unknown; some sources credit George Washington, who referred to New York state in December 1784 as "at present the seat of the Empire" (source: statesymbolsusa.org). New York became the 11th state of the United States of America in 1788.
