When the World Building was set for demolition in 1955 to give better access to another great New York City monument, the Brooklyn Bridge, the cornerstone box could not be found. But during the wrecking process, it was struck by machinery and rescued. Most but not all of its contents came to Columbia to be added toThe WorldRecords. Missing from the group, according toThe World Its History & Its New Home, are: three gold coins; three silver coins; and the silver medal struck when The World circulation reached 250,000.
