Importance of New York City in Jared Leto's life

Leto further revealed the importance of New York City in his life and what the Empire State Building symbolised to him.

"It's incredible. To watch the sun rise overlooking the city that's meant so much to me. Ever since I was a kid, New York stood for the place that you went to make your dreams come true," explained the 51-year-old star.

"And as a young kid, I wanted to be an artist, and New York was the place that you came to be an artist. And the Empire State Building was always that symbol for me."

"I've always had a fascination with the Empire State Building. And I love to climb," revealed the American musician.

Interestingly, Leto has become the first person to ever legally climb to the top of the Empire State Building, according to TODAY.
