NEW YORK (AP) A woman Guinness World Records says is the shortest in the world made a visit to one of the world's tallest buildings in New York City for the launch of the latest edition of the records book.

Jyoti Amge (JOE-tee AHM-gay) visited the 86th floor observation deck of the Empire State Building on Thursday. The 19-year-old from Nagpur, India, measures at just over 2 feet, inch tall.

She's making her first visit to the United States. Through a translator, Amge said Guinness had given her the opportunity to travel the world and made her "very popular and very famous."

Her trip to New York City also included a visit to Times Square and the Statue of Liberty.
