The World Trade Center

Chicago may justly claim to be the birthplace of the skyscraper, but the tall building came of age in New York. There is no place like Manhattan to see the multifaceted forms, functions, and fashions of skyscraper architecture, from the days when a 10-story building was considered daring to the redevelopment of the World Trade Center complex.

The tour, which encompasses many different neighborhoods, focuses on some of the most famous skyscrapers in the world--like the Empire State Building, World Trade Center, Flatiron, and more--with an emphasis on the ten NYC buildings that have claimed the title of “tallest in the world."

Featured on the tour:  The Park Row Building * Woolworth Building * Marine Midland Bank (now Brown Brothers Harriman) * One Liberty Plaza (originally the US Steel Building) * 40 Wall Street (originally the Manhattan Company) * the Bayard-Condict Building * One Fifth Avenue * Flatiron Building * Lever House * the Seagram Building * Rockefeller Center * Chrysler Building * 4 Times Square  * the Empire State Building
