New York Tour -- Last Stop
The Woolworth Building, completed in 1913, stands at a height of 792 feet, 1 inch.
Frank W. Woolworth intended it to be the tallest building in the world.
Frank Winfield Woolworth opened his first "Woolworth's" store in Utica, New York in 1878.
The Woolworth's Five & Dime in Greensboro, North Carolina, is historically significant in the Civil Rights movement.
The Woolworth Five and Dime closed all their doors in 1997.
Click here for a little history on Radio City Music Hall.
Today the largest library is actually the Library of Congress (This is a great site to look through some old newspapers). However, the New York Library is one of the leading public libraries of the world. They also have a digital collection.
Well that is the end of our time with John, Alice, and May.
