40 Wall Street, also known as the Trump Building, is a skyscraper in New York City, United States. It is 283 meters (927 feet) tall and has 70 floors. It was built in 1930 and is one of the tallest buildings in the world.

40 Wall Street was the tallest building in the world from April to May 1930. Before it was built, the tallest building in the world was the Woolworth Building. The Chrysler Building became the tallest a few months later.

At first it was named the Bank of the Manhattan Company Building, but when the name of the bank changed the building was named for its address of 40 Wall Street. When Donald Trump bought the building in 1995 he changed it to The Trump Building.
