About

This 1980s long pullover sweater in an ivory angora blend is decorated with famous NY buildings, each in black, silver, or gold sequins. Among those represented are the Empire State Building, The Chrysler Building, and especially the tallest at the time - the World Trade Center. Small gold beads are studded throughout the rest of the front and the sleeves of the sweater; the back is undecorated. The sweater has dropped shoulders and shoulder pads, which could be removed if desired. A special document of the skyline pre-9/11.
