The distinct two-tiered design of the 59-story Gothic revival Woolworth Building was the creation of architect Cass Gilbert. Built to house the headquarters of Frank W. Woolworth's retail business, at the time of its construction in 1913 it was the tallest building in the world. The roof is a mini-pyramid surrounded by flying buttresses, pinnacles and four small towers. Inside, the lobby features an ornate ceiling with intricately carved sculptures. You can walk in and admire the entrance at any time of the day or night.
