Grand Central isn't the only NYC icon turning 100 this year. Just two months after it opened in 1913, President Woodrow Wilson flipped on a ceremonial switch to illuminate the new Woolworth Building, at the time the tallest office building in the world, on April 24. This exhibit spotlights the elegant green building, from the initial stages of architect Cass Gilbert's design and an up-close look at the building's gorgeous terra cotta ornaments to an examination of the building's pop cultural significance. All ages.
