Join Toni McKeen to investigate the historic Woolworth Building, an early American skyscraper designed by architect Cass Gilbert located at 233 Broadway in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City.  It was the tallest building in the world from 1913 to 1930 and remains one of the 100 tallest buildings in the United States.  F. W. Woolworth, founder of a brand of popular five-and-ten-cent stores, conceived the skyscraper as a headquarters for his company. The building has been a National Historic Landmark since 1966, and a New York City designated landmark since 1983.
