Answer:  STORIED PAST

(This one took some thought from me.  It wasn’t automatic, like most of them.  I think I’d have to credit the great answer letter layout.  It was a great jumble.  I did have an inkling that the first word might end in ED, but I first thought of the word STEP.  Then I was thinking – despite no C or N, and wrong letters per word – SECOND STORY.  But, that did bring me to STORIED, and the answer.  No new clue words today, but two of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “sareo” and “natds” before.  Nice cartoon.  Is this Chicago, or New York.  I seem to remember the first “skyscraper” being built in Chicago, but I don’t know if it’s the famous one with additions.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hi UR, like you, I spent time on today’s solution. I, too, thought the first word might end in ‘ed’. But the second word, I briefly considered ‘rise’ and ‘site’, both discarded fairly quickly, with ‘rise’ in the clue. And ‘arose’ had me baffled for a sec… when I saw it, I thought, ‘ah, we’ve seen this before, but I’m still not getting it immediately!’…(Santa did not bring me the additional brain power I asked for)…Loved the vintage skyscraper pictures you posted. Happy and blessed 2017 to you, and to all in the Jumble-verse!
