CITY REALTY ARTICLE
The Woolworth Tower Residences comprise 33 condominium apartments at the top of the 60-story Woolworth Building at 233 Broadway facing City Hall Park.
The 792-foot-high building is one of the world’s most famous skyscrapers and was the tallest in the world when it was built in 1912. It held that title until it was surpassed in 1930 by the Chrysler Building, which lost the title 18 months later to the Empire State Building.
Known as the “Cathedral of Commerce,” it was designed by Cass Gilbert, who also designed the sumptuous United States Custom House at the foot of Broadway.
It abounds in Gothic-style tracery and Philip Johnson, the architect, told Carter B. Horsley, when he was at The New York Times, that it was his favorite skyscraper.
The residential portion of the building has a 2 Park Place address.
