A First Step: Early Manhattan Skyscrapers

With Matt Postal

[Virtual tour] Iron and elevators, combined with soaring real estate costs, made the skyscraper a New York City invention. Join Matt Postal for a close look at lost and landmarked examples, from the groundbreaking Equitable Life Assurance Building, which boasted “five steam elevators constantly in motion,” to the picturesque Potter, Bayard Condict, and Decker buildings – all featuring remarkable terracotta details.
