Woolworth Building Tours

star-4.5
5 Reviews
Woolworth Building
Located in Lower Manhattan, New York City’s Woolworth Building is a relic of another era. The building, which was constructed in 1913, is an architectural statement on New York’s skyline, with its neo-Gothic detailing and impressive height. Closed to the public for years, the Woolworth’s historic lobby is now open to visitors.

The Basics
The Woolworth Building, which originally served as the company’s New York City headquarters, was the world’s tallest building for 17 years. Today it maintains a vintage charm that captures the elegance of early 20th-century design, and its spectacular lobby draws crowds of architecture admirers.

Many New York City sightseeing tours, helicopter tours, and architecture cruises pass by the Woolworth Building. To see the building’s lobby and lower level, you must book a guided tour. Pre-registration is required—walk-in guests are turned away—so purchase tour tickets in advance to ensure a spot.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Woolworth Building is a must for architecture and vintage-design enthusiasts, who marvel at the building’s ornate interior.
  • The building is privately owned and is open to the public only with tour tickets.
  • Thirty-, 60-, and 90-minute tours are available.
  • The tour is open to visitors aged 10 and older.
  • The lobby is accessible to wheelchair users, with elevator access to all areas of the tours.

How to Get There
The Woolworth Building is on Broadway between Barclay Street and Park Place in Lower Manhattan, a short distance from City Hall. The best way to get there is via subway: take the 4, 5, or 6 train to the Brooklyn Bridge–City Hall stop; the N, R, or W to City Hall; or the J, M, or Z to Chambers Street.

When to Get There
Small-group lobby tours are offered daily year-round. These are a great option if the weather is dreary or cold, though walking around Lower Manhattan is most pleasant in spring, summer, and autumn. Consider booking a weekday tour during business hours to avoid weekend crowds and commuters.

How to Visit the Brooklyn Bridge
When you step outside the main doors of the Woolworth Building and cross City Hall Park, you find the entrance to the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. The pedestrian pathway is clearly marked, and begins off of Centre Street. Walk the path up and over the Brooklyn Bridge, enjoy stunning views of Manhattan and Brooklyn along the way, and then explore the DUMBO neighborhood and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Address: 233 Broadway, New York, USA

The Weekender City Running Tour Package

star-5
Join City Running Tours on two days of guided running tours throughout New York City's most well known landmarks. Day 1 will take you on an 4 mile adventure through the world's most well know green space, Central Park. It's hard to imagine that everything you see while running through park was put there by design, but that's exactly what you'll experience on this running tour. The lower portion of the park features the most ambitious landscape architecture ever implemented in the United States and magically escorts the viewer out of the city and into a peaceful park surrounding. Day 2 brings you on a 4 mile tour over the most iconic landmark in all of New York, the Brooklyn Bridge. At any time of day the bridge provides great views of Manhattan and Brooklyn and offers a look back at the origins of modern day New York City, when Manhattan and Brooklyn were still separate cities. Run with us and check off your bucket list as these will be two days that you will always remember!

Downtown Terra Cotta TourCultural Tours

Downtown Terra Cotta Tour

Before New York’s tallest towers were sheathed in glass, they were clad in clay. Terra-Cotta, or “fired earth,” is an ancient building material made of baked clay, that helped make New York a Modern city. At the turn of the 20th century, terra-cotta became a sought-after fire-proof skin for the steel skeletons of the city’s tallest buildings. Though you’ll find it on some of New York’s most iconic structures, including the Flatiron Building, The Woolworth Building, and the Plaza Hotel, terra-cotta often hides in plain sight, mimicking other materials like granite or carved wood. On this tour of Lower Manhattan, we’ll uncover some of city’s earliest terra-cotta structures. Along the way, we’ll see the tallest terra-cotta structure in the world and find out how this stunningly versatile material moved from monochrome to multi-colored, and helped shift the city from Beaux-Arts beauty to Art Deco splendor!
