“one of the oldest skyscrapers in the US”

The Woolworth Building, designed by architect Cass Gilbert in 1913, is one of the oldest skyscrapers in the United States. More than a century after the start of its construction, it remains, at 57 stories, one of the fifty-tallest buildings in the United States as well as one of the twenty-tallest buildings in New York City. Since 1966 it has been a National Historic Landmark,and a New York City landmark since 1983. The Woolworth Building was constructed in neo-Gothic style by architect Cass Gilbert, who was commissioned by Frank Woolworth in 1910 to design the tallest building in the world as the Woolworth Company's new corporate headquarters on Broadway, between Park Place and Barclay Street in Lower Manhattan, opposite City Hall. Originally planned to be 625 feet (191 m) high, the building was eventually elevated to 792 feet (241 m).The construction cost was US$13.5 million and Woolworth paid all of it in cash. On completion, the Woolworth building overtook the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower as the world's-tallest building; it opened on April 24, 1913.
