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.

With a flat rooftop that squares off at 1,396 feet, 432 Park Avenue, upon its completion in 2015, will become the tallest residential building in New York City and in the western hemisphere. At that height, it will be taller than the 1,368-foot roof of One World Trade Center, as well as of the original WTC Tower 1, which at that height was, from 1971-1973, the world's tallest building.
