I took the 90 min VIP tour of the Woolworth Building conducted by Laura. It was an amazing. I'm a native New Yorker and also a tour guide. Of course the building is magnificent but what I was most intrigued with was the history. I've done reading and research on the building over the years but learned so much on... More

What a wonderful opportunity to see and learn about a building that has significance to NYC and our national heritage! Our guide was very knowledgable and passionate about her work. We are grateful that this building is open for tours and we had a delightful time.

Friendly tour guide and beautiful landmark building to visit before it becomes fully residential. They offer 30 minutes offer basic tour of main floor lobby. 60 minute tour on includes the lower level. 90 minutes offers the deluxe tour of the mezzanine level. You can book online and explore the beauty of what this landmark has to offer. Must see.

This tour was amazing. I went with my mom and aunt, who was visiting over the holiday period. This was one of the best tours we went on. The building lobby is amazing. We learned so much about the history of the building, the Woolworth family and corporation as well as NYC as a whole. Our tour guide, Bob, really... More

My husband and I went on the tour this past weekend and let me tell you it was fabulous! The building is spectacular and the tour guide is a wealth of knowledge. We really never expected to be so pleased. If you are considering this tour please dont pass it up you definitely will not regret it!

Though it was a thrill to see the lobby of the Woolworth Building and get an hour talk of its history, the tour was still a disappointment as we were not able to get in the elevator or see some of the floors of the building. I know the building his being retrofitted to be sold as residential condos but... More

There is nothing to see on this tour, except the lobby, which you can see without paying. It is simply unbelievable that they charge $32 per person to walk around the small lobby. The "guide" was a nice lady, had a few old photographs with her, but was not allowed to show us the building. Don't waste you time and... More

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.
