There’s no shortage of tall, impressive skyscrapers in Gotham: the Flatiron Building, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Woolworth Building, Rockefeller Center and One World Observatory are just a few of the massive structures recognizable the world over. At this Battery Park museum exhibit, explore the design, technology, real investments and construction techniques that make these towering beauties possible in our vertical metropolis.

I highly recommend visiting the Skyscraper Museum! If you are interested in architecture, tall buildings, urban history, or New York City history you will love this museum. It's not the biggest museum but they pack in a lot of information and you could spend hours in the museum trying to take everything in! The museum also holds book talks and other events that are worth checking out.
