But some of New York City's glory has faded since the late 20th century. It lost the mantle of having the tallest building in the world when Chicago built Sears Tower (442.1 meters / 1,450 feet) in 1874, and New York City hasn't reclaimed it since and won't likely anytime soon.

1874... Does anyone edit their shit any more?
