Woolworth Building's Centennial in April 2013

When this building opened on April 24, 1913, it, at 792 feet, was the tallest structure in the world except for the Eiffel Tower. On opening day, a clergyman gave the building its nickname, the Cathedral of Commerce. This information is from the F.Y.I. column in yesterday's New York Times, at Metropolitan p. 4.
