Woolworth Building Tours

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
