The Skyscraper Museum is devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. The Museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence. This site will look better in a browser that supports web standards, but it is accessible to any browser or Internet device.
DOWNTOWN NEW YORK WEB WALK
The Downtown New York Web Walk offers four interactive virtual walking tours through Lower Manhattan's skyscraper canyons and more than a century of high-rise construction. In addition, four downloadable versions, featuring text and photographs in Adobe PDF format, are also available for touring on foot.
