The Empire State Building is a skyscraper in New York City and the current location of Olympus, the home of the Greek gods. Olympus is found on the 600th floor. The Empire State Building is located at 350 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10118. The architects of this building were Shreve, Lamb, and Harmon.

When the center of Western Civilization in the world became America, Olympus moved itself to American in turn. It anchored itself at the top of the Empire State Building and became hidden as the 600th floor. The Olympian gods and goddesses will meet twice a year here for the winter and summer solstices. The gods moved Olympus to the Empire State Building from it's previous position following a bright "flame" which was Western Civilization.

Magical Defenses
There is usually a security guard in the lobby who always tries to persuade demigods and mortals alike that there isn't a 600th floor. However, if you can show him something magical or make him believe you are a demigod or god, then he will give you a key enabling you to travel to Olympus.

Hall of the Gods
The Hall of the Gods is the largest room on Olympus and is where the gods' thrones are located and where all formal and war councils meetings are held.

The Hall of the Gods is the place where the gods have their summer and winter solstices. High above, the blue ceiling can be seen glittering with constellations. The Thrones of the gods stand in a U or at least it did before the minor gods, and Hades received thrones around the hearth starting with Zeus and Poseidon's thrones as they are the most powerful Greek gods. Hades does not have a throne on Olympus due to the fact that his throne resides in the Underworld, but when he comes to Olympus, there is a guest throne that he occupies.

From Zeus and Poseidon's thrones the goddesses sit on the left side of the hearth and the other gods sit on the right side.
