The tour guide was nice and knowledgeable. Said we could not see the 2 cathedrals on the 60 min tour but think it could have been done along with visiting an office floor. I would strongly recommend the tour to everyone.

The guide was wonderful and highly informative. Did a great job of explaining why the building is so extraordinary. Highly recommended for those interested in the retail and commercial history of NYC as well as early 20th century NY architecture.

The building always stands out as a jem in lower Manhattan. The guide was informative and involved. Learned a few tid bits about Mr Woolworth and his start and growth. Bring your camera as they allow you to take pictures of the beautiful and intricate interior.

Very nice tour, the lobby is quite interesting. Our guide was very pleasant and very knowlegable. I was especially impressed by the wall paintings on the mezzanine which could be seen from downstairs. .

This historic 60-story structure, at 233 Broadway in Downtown Manhattan, was the tallest skyscraper in New York when it was completed in 1913. It was financed in cash by Frank W.

The visit is not worth the money you are asking for. It is a pity you cannot extend your visit to other upper part of the building. I would not recomend.

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.
