Skyscrapers get taller and taller, but they're getting skinnier, too. Construction will soon begin on a Manhattan high-rise apartment building that will be the world's skinniest. The skyscraper planned to stand at 111 West 57th Street will be 60 feet wide and taller than the rooftop of the Empire State Building. "The Future Is Now" host Sheila Dharmarajan spoke with the planners, developers and architects to find out more about this skinny skyscraper, and about the trend to go skinny.
