On April 24th, 1913, the Woolworth Building opens in New York City.
Designed in 1910 by renowned architect, Cass Gilbert, the building headquartered the F.W. Woolworth, a pioneer five and dime store, for 85 years. This neo-Gothic building was originally planned to be only 20 stories tall. But by its opening, the building had been expanded to 60 stories and was the tallest building in the world from 1913 until 1930.
