GE Building: A Story about Storeys

GE Building: A Story about Storeys
The General Electric / GE Building, Rockefeller Center, Manhattan, New York.

While reading my U.S.-published guidebook, I read that the GE Building is an Art Deco 70-story building. And I thought, don't they mean to write 70-storEy building?

All these years, I didn't know the Americans spell "levels of a building" the same way as "tales". In British and Canadian English, levels of a building are spelt "storey/ storeys".
