Woolworth Tower in Clouds, New York City
Photographed in 1928, Woolworth Tower can be seen in an aerial shot peaking up over the clouds which cover New York City. At this time, it was the tallest building in the city, originally 420ft high then elevated to 792ft, before the Empire State Building was constructed. The architect Cass Gilbert designed the building with a neo-gothic style which would become a 60 story office building with over 5,000 windows for the F.W. Woolworth Company’s headquarters. To this day it still remains one of the top 100 buildings in the U.S. and one of the top 30 within New York City.
