At the beginning of this movie during a bus tour, James Gleason points out several New York City landmarks among them the Woolworth Building. It was the tallest building in the world from 1913 to 1930, standing 792 feet (241 m) high. It was supplanted by the Empire State Building which opened May 1, 1931. The Empire State Building stood as the world's tallest building until the construction of the World Trade Center in 1970 and after 9-11 was once again the city's tallest building.
