Explore one of the most iconic buildings in the New York City skyline with an interactive, guided tour.

One of the early American skyscrapers and the tallest building in the world from 1913 until 1930, the Woolworth Building is “as close as you can come to visiting a royal palace in New York.” And you get to tour it!

The tour will include discussions about the building’s highly-ornamented exterior, the ornate lobby which was granted Landmark status in 1983, and a rare chance to see areas that have been closed to the public for the past 12 years.

While touring the lobby we’ll also hear about the construction of the building, its historic role in the creation of the skyscraper and the New York City skyline, and some fascinating background about Frank Woolworth and Cass Gilbert, the architect.
