WoolworthTours.com was fantastic! It was a great glimpse into an iconic NYC landmark. The guide was incredibly informative of both the building itself, and the history of how it came to be. Definitely recommend.

If you are interested and eye popping art nouveau architectural details this is the place to visit if you can get on an approved tour of the interior. There is nothing quite like it in the world.

Highly recommend the lobby tour to anyone interested in seeing a NYC gem! Barbara was our guide and she was so so so so so good! I'm inclined to do it again. Bring your camera!

The tour guide was nice and knowledgeable. Said we could not see the 2 cathedrals on the 60 min tour but think it could have been done along with visiting an office floor. I would strongly recommend the tour to everyone.

The guide was wonderful and highly informative. Did a great job of explaining why the building is so extraordinary. Highly recommended for those interested in the retail and commercial history of NYC as well as early 20th century NY architecture.

The building always stands out as a jem in lower Manhattan. The guide was informative and involved. Learned a few tid bits about Mr Woolworth and his start and growth. Bring your camera as they allow you to take pictures of the beautiful and intricate interior.

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.
