The Skyscraper Museum is devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. The Museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence. This site will look better in a browser that supports web standards, but it is accessible to any browser or Internet device.

The model at the left represents 515 Park Avenue, another project by the developer of 15 Central Park West, the Zeckendorf family. Designed by the architect Frank Williams, who also favored traditional masonry and punch windows, this tower with its series of setbacks and slender top stories was a real estate success story, garnering $26.5 for its penthouse in 2001.
