Historic Building in Manhattan: The Woolworth Building
The Woolworth Building was constructed between 1910 and 1912 at 233 Broadway in Manhattan, and at the time of its completion – and for the next 28 years – it was the tallest building in the world.
An interesting fact about the construction of The Woolworth Building is that it was originally designed to be only 420 feet high, but as construction continued, designers and investors decided to extend its high to 792 feet – or the equivalent of 60 stories. At its completion, it had over 5,000 windows – another record for buildings at the time.
Today, the building still commands attention as one of New York City’s original skyscrapers.
