The Singer Building - Tallest Building in the World 1908-1909
The cupola was a beauty! But I wasn't fortunate to be around when this building was still standing. RIP Singer Building!
What replaced the Singer Building after demolition?
The Singer Building with the 148m City Investing Building (demolished along with the Singer Building in 1969)
It was such a nice looking building. But soon we we will also be without the Hotel Penn - figure that one out.
What exactly was going through the minds of the people who razed this building? Was it a simple case of making a huge amount of money by increasing the available space on the plot? It's such a shame that the Singer Building is gone and soon the Hotel Penn too.
