This is the Woolworth Building in Manhattan, 790 ft tall, construction was completed in 1913.
Designed by architect Cass Gilbert, born in 1859, who was an early advocate of the skyscraper. As well as his achievements with the Woolworth building, Gilbert is also known for his work on the United States Supreme Court Building.
The Woolworth Building was the tallest in the world from 1913 to 1930 until the construction of 40 Wall Street and the Chrysler Building. Both of these, of course, went on to overshadowed by the Empire State Building shortly after.
Though this building is an icon of New York City, a lot of people don’t know this stuff and it’s such a shame because it’s so interesting!
More fun facts about the structure include: At its opening the lights were turned on by President Woodrow Wilson. Also, did you know that the building holds over 5000 windows? Not to mention, the Lincoln American Tower in Tennessee is a small scale replica of the Woolworth Building! -
