The best thing is to sign up for a tour and get the insider details on this architectural gem. The architect's granddaughter gives tours once a week and has stories to tell!

I had never seen the Woolworth Building until one day with a friend we decided it was a "must see". Because there is... More

If you want to see the inside of one of the most famous landmarks in Lower Manhattan, this is the only way to do it, and it is well worth the time if you are at all interested in architecture.

A lot of talking on the street in very cold weather (which really could have been done indoors). Knowledgeable tour guide. Expensive for its value.

Beautiful building. Fascinating background of Cass Gilbert, Architect, his vision;ditto, his engineers, ditto, the amazing Mr Woolworth. I took the 90 minute tour. I highly recommend it for the time available for the spaces visited & the background stories. Bob Gelbert, the Guide, was so knowledgeable, so generous & so nice. Total cost $47 Worth every minute. I highly recommend... More

I've always known about the Woolworth Building as a great piece of period architecture, with the lobby being particularly noteworthy, but I understood that it was no longer open to tourism. I only recently learned that it's been available for tours the past few years. We booked through the website and had an excellent visit. You can only visit on... More

We were not sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. The tour is the only way to see the inside of this building. The level of detail provided by the guide was immense and he had an amazing knowledge. It really is a beautiful building with so many features. Our only negative would be being able to see a...

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
