After our most recent Untapped Cities exclusive tour of the Woolworth Building, where we went into the bowls of the famously off-limits building, we shared our top 10 favorite secrets including the infamous pool, the safety deposit vault in the basement, the gorgeous mezzanine, the water tank in the boiler room and the building’s connection to the Manhattan Project. We have just three tickets left to our next tour on April 12th at 1pm.
Untapped Cities will be offering readers the chance for intimate, hour-long tour of the normally off-limits Woolworth Building lobby led by Lisa Swyers, a preservationist working directly with the archives of the Woolworth Building. In addition to a guided visit through the spectacular lobby, we will also visit the basement level where the bank vault is located and where the former entrances to the subway are. Other locations, as seen on previous Untapped Cities tours, will be dependent on building access on the particular day. Untapped Cities works directly with the tour guides to provide additional access not necessarily available on regular tours of the building.
Following the tour, we will lead guests to an optional cocktail hour at the historic Fraunces Tavern.
