The Trump Building (1930) by H. Craig Severance Photos

Originally built as the Bank of Manhattan (1930) (40 Wall St.) (70 floors) by H. Craig Severance, the tower held the record as world's tallest for a few weeks until the Chrysler Building beat it. Donald Trump remodeled the tower in 1995. It is hard to realize the height of the tower because it sits packed in the middle of Wall Street.
