History of New York: the first skyscraper is the Woolworth Building. The height of this building is 241 meters. It was completed in 1913. There are 57 floors. For over 90 years this beautiful architecture building has been one of the tallest buildings in the USA and the twenty highest buildings in New York.
The world’s tallest building upon completion in 1913, Cass Gilbert’s 60-story, 792ft-tall Woolworth Building is a neo-Gothic marvel, elegantly clad in masonry and terracotta. (It was surpassed in height by the Chrysler Building in 1930.) The breathtaking lobby – a spectacle of dazzling, Byzantine-like mosaics – is accessible only on prebooked guided tours, which also offer insight into the building’s more curious original features, among them a dedicated subway entrance and a secret swimming pool.
