What You'll Get
From its grand marble staircase and its glass mosaic ceiling to its striking murals, the Woolworth Building is a structural work of art. The lobby of this historic landmark was closed to the public for 12 years, but it's recently reopened for tours. Choose from a 30-, 60- or 90-minute guided tour led by an expert of the building's gothic structure and history. The 30-minute tour features the sumptuously ornamented entry, including the grand marble staircase and glass mosaic ceiling, as well as a brief history of the building's construction and unique terracotta exterior. The 60-minute tour offers a more in-depth look at the majestic lobby -- you'll also learn about the building's role in helping form Manhattan's skyline, and about Frank Woolworth, who commissioned the building, and Cass Gilbert, its architect. The 90-minute tour adds a stop on the mezzanine, with its historic murals and Tiffany designs, as well as a visit to hidden corners and staircases that aren't seen by most visitors.
Some tours will spend a portion of the time outside looking at the exterior of the building and some neighboring buildings as well. Please dress accordingly.
