New York is the skyscraper capital of the World. For over a 100 years architects there have been reaching skywards with their buildings to create the towering skyline for which the city is so famous. Never in all that time has anyone actually charted the building of a skyscraper. The process that transforms a city block from a piece of wasteland into this great tower that soars above the city's streets. That is what this series of programmes does for the very first time. This award winning series charted the construction of World Wide Plaza on the site formerly occupied by New York's famous Madison Square Garden.
