Atop the Woolworth

The Woolworth Building’s observation deck catered to 300,000 paying visitors a year unitl it closed in 1945 thanks to competition from the newer Empire State Building. Before the abandoned observation deck could be converted into a private residence, Sextantworks took our intrepid house band Amour Obscur there to shoot a music video. News helecoptors gathered with interest, but building security didn't seem to notice.
