Yea, thats just a conspiracy. the real reason for the Empire State explosian was a B-25, and I highly doubt the Germans ever flew any plan to Americas shores.

I googled it, that is the only site with that little article, and the guns first test firing was 4 months after this incident. It was a B-25 Liberator Bomber, not a German V3 that only fired a limited number of shots, all directed towards Luxembourg.

Sigh. Some corrections are in order for the posters on this topic. Here are some of them.

B-25s are Mitchells. B-24s are Liberators.

The V-3 guns were fixed in one direction: England. They didnt swivel around and attack luxenburg. However, V-2s were shot at antwerp during the last stages of the war..

These were dubbed Wunderwaffen, or “wonder weapons” by the Germans and actually the original name for the V-1 was "(Vergeltungswaffe 1 FZG-76 (V1), known as the Flying Bomb, Buzz Bomb or Doodlebug. Vergeltungswaffe means "reprisal weapon", and FZG is an abbreviation of Flak Ziel Gerät ("anti-aircraft aiming device"), a misleading name," and the V-2's original name was the A-4 (being the 4th in the series of missiles), but the Allies naturally called them “vengeance weapons” and adopted the “V” name

Never wanting to be far behind the Air Force, the Navy adopted the Aphrodite technique, using its version of the B-24, but with two pilots who also were to bail out over England, while their aircraft was to proceed under radio control to submarine pens at Heligoland, Germany. The first pilot was Navy Lt. Joseph Kennedy, Jr., older brother of John F. Kennedy, 35th US President. His copilot was Lt. Bud Willy. While still over England, the aircraft exploded, killing both men.

No, they did not swivel like you said, instead the just simply build another battery of them fixed on Luxembourg.
