MORE ABOUT THE TOUR:

The Woolworth Building is one of New York City’s most famous off-limits landmarks. Though its cathedral-like interior of glass and marble is landmarked, security concerns after 9/11 rendered it closed to the public unless you lived or worked in the skyscraper, once the tallest in the world. On our one hour tour of the normally off-limits Woolworth Building, we will visit its stunning lobby, mezzanine, and cellar level, where the bank vault still stands. Get a complete picture of the engineering feat and aesthetic masterpiece that the skyscraper is.
