F. W. Woolworth funded this elaborate design on his own dime - and nickel. Designed by the renowned architect Cass Gilbert in 1913 as Frank W. Woolworth’s NYC headquarters, the landmarked Woolworth Building was the tallest in the world for 17 years. Long closed to the public, architectural tours of its magnificent vintage lobby are now available.

We were turned away the minute we approached the door. They do not welcome anyone who doesn't work in the building access.

Yes, there are tons of places to eat within a block or two - you're never far from anything in Manhattan and everything is always open, for the most part.
