Woolworth Building

Downtown, Manhattan

This building is note worthy: The Woolworth Building.
Its lobby is gorgeous I believe, though it's been a while since I've been there. When I was a small child my mother and I took an elevator all the way to the top. There was one small office at the very top accessed by a small elevator after a larger one. Then there was a small spiral staircase into the darkness of the old gothic marvel's top. This is a relic of the old times when buildings were made as flags of people's empires. It is said that the Woolworth building is made from jars and jars of nickels and dimes.
