CM: The New York World Building, also known as the Pulitzer Building after the newpaper owner who commissioned it, was a skyscraper at 53-63 Park Row, Manhattan. It was designed by early skyscraper specialist George Browne Post (1837-1913) and built in 1890 to house the now-defunct newspaper, The New York World. The World Building was the winner of this competition and the tallest building in Manhattan from 1890 to 1894. It was the city's first building to surpass the 284-foot spire of Trinity Church which, at the time, dominated the city's skyline. It was was demolished in 1955 for the expanded car ramp entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge.
