Have a big nest near me
I know it is empty ,but would like to know what kind of bird of pray it was that made it . Up tree about 75 ft looks to be 3 ft by 3 ft

You need to provide more information.

Yes, Filmore gives good advice. Where are you located (city and state??). Are you perhaps near water in pond, lake, or river; urban or rural landscape? Is nest in tree (yes) (or on bridge or building); is tree live or dead; is nest constructed of twigs or branches some as large as 1 inch diameter; is nest new during 2019 or has nest been present several years.
Even so, an identification may be impossible without information about bird. However, this does read as if a hawk, eagle, owl, or crow. But also one of the herons possibly?

Ok sorry kentville ns canada doctor's parking lot on exhibition st. to see it there is a broken small tree 6 to 8 in. across and 2 1/2 ft up laying against other trees . on south side of said lot go over beside it and look up and yes the twigs look to be about 1 in. i hope this helps and again sorry Nest is new this year.

Still hard to say, but I would say Osprey should be a likely suspect.

Karl makes a good guess.
Is this nest at the hospital?
We are viewing Google satellite view, but we cannot determine which is the doctor's parking lot from Google view. Can you suggest a more precise location in reference to the helicopter pad marked by a nice + on our screen (assuming we are in the correct location)?
Our version of Google may not get us close enough to see the nest, but the habitat along Brooklyn St and Cornwallis river looks to be great habitat for osprey from our remote view here.
