1902 New York City

2400

By the turn of the century the lower Manhattan skyline had filled in and grown much taller. The majority of high-rise construction began after 1890, when the New York World Building reached 309ft. A spate of new towers followed from 1893. By 1900 there were 252 structures 10 storeys or higher. The tallest of these was the Park Row Building at 391ft.
