Workers Excavate the Site for the Foundation of the New Macy's Building in New York City Ca. 1902Unknown - 1902
The development of the skyscraper in the early 20th century created a building boom in New York and other large American cities. One of the first new skyscrapers built was the Macy's building, a multistoried department store. Stores such as these grew rapidly during the Gilded Age due in part to the rise of public transportation, which made it easy for shoppers to travel to commercial districts.
