Met Life Tower

POST #    2624

Did you know that the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower was at one point the world's tallest building? From 1909-1913, it held that distinction, until the Woolworth Building passed it.

I think I have to take this picture while waiting in line for Shake Shack at least once a year. Last night, we went after going to Shaffer City Oyster Bar for their $1 oyster night. Four people combined to eat 54 oysters. I followed that up with a Double Shack Burger. Mmmm!

I did not know that. The building has certainly held up well over time - still looks fresh and distinguished.
