|40 Wall Street is a 70-story skyscraper in New York City completed in 1930 after only 11 months of construction. It is located on the north side of Wall Street between Broad Street and William Street. It was first known as Bank of Manhattan Trust Building when it was built. Its pinnacle reaches 927 feet (282.5m) and was very briefly the tallest building in the world, soon surpassed by the Chrysler Building finished that same year. The building is now also known as the Trump Building (which adorns the building currently) after a 1996 renovation by Donald Trump who had bought the building. In 1998, the building was designated a historic landmark by the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission.|
The tower is the tallest mid-block building in the whole of New York.
Don't confuse this with the Trump Tower, something completely different.
