in New York City.[4] The second-, third- and fourth-tallest buildings in Chicago are the Trump International Hotel

Chicago
is the birthplace of the skyscraper.[7][8] The Home Insurance Building, completed in 1885, is regarded as the world's first skyscraper. This building used the steel-frame method, innovated in Chicago. It was originally built with 10 stories, a considerable height in the 1800s, to a height of 138 feet (42 m), making it the tallest building in the world. It was later expanded to 12 stories with a height of 180 feet (55 m). The building was demolished in 1931.[9][10] New York City
New York City
then began building skyscrapers as Chicago had done, and the two cities were virtually the only cities in the world with huge skylines for many decades. Chicago
Chicago
has always played a prominent role in the development of skyscrapers and three past buildings have been the tallest building in the United States. Being the inventor of the skyscraper, Chicago
Chicago
went through a very early high-rise construction boom that lasted from the early 1920s to the late 1930s, during which 11 of the city's 91 tallest buildings were constructed. The city then went through an even much larger building boom that has lasted from the early 1960s. The tallest buildings are concentrated in various downtown districts such as the Loop, Streeterville, River North, the South Loop, and the West Loop. Other high-rises extend north along the waterfront into North Side districts such as the Gold Coast, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Uptown and Edgewater. Some high-rises also extend south from downtown along the waterfront to South Side districts such as Kenwood, Hyde Park, and South Shore. Several new skyscrapers were constructed in the city throughout the 2000s, including the Trump International Hotel
Hotel
and Tower. As of August 2016[update] there were 67 skyscrapers under construction in Chicago.[11]

Fire in 1871, and replaced by the current cathedral of the same name in 1875. B. ^ The clock tower on this building was removed in 1895, allowing a shorter building to become the tallest in the city. C. ^ The Masonic Temple, built in 1892, became the tallest in Chicago three years later when the Board of Trade Building had its clock tower removed. D. ^ This building is currently 282 feet (86 m) tall, following the removal of a pyramid top and sculpture.
