A modern box blocking that magnificant building.
this might upset you even more but it is also going to be blocked from the west side with this tower30 park place

^^^Wonderful photographs of the Woolworth Building.
I really enjoyed the detail photos of the ornament.
Also the photos of the backside of the building....a view you don't see very often.

The Woolworth is a god-like cathedral in the sky. One of the finest structures in human history.

What's the deal with those metal braces (lower portion)? Were these always in place?

Wow, so gorgeous. Love that pink and green nightlighting
And all that carved stone is a treasure, you don't see it anymore.
A damn shame you can't get into the lobby anymore

They could make some pretty good cash selling tickets for off hours or weekend tours, for people who wanna admire the artwork.

^Adjusted for inflation, that $13M comes out to $300 million dollars today.
