The Museum's new exhibit, "RESIDENTIAL RISING: Lower Manhattan Since 9/11" features 13 unique models of residential towers--nine new and three conversions--that have redefined the lower Manhattan skyline since 9/11.

Downtown’s evolution into a mixed-residential neighborhood has more than doubled the residential population from 39,000 in 2000 to over 82,000 today without drastically altering the historic urban fabric. A key dynamic of change has been the conversion of older office buildings into apartments – ranging in character from iconic landmarks such as the Woolworth Building and One Wall Street to back-office glass boxes of the 1960s and 70s.

The Skyscraper Museum asks that visitors reserve free timed-entry tickets in advance. Entry times are every hour on the hour from noon through 5:00pm.
