This is one of the most exclusive tours in New York! Why? Because no one else offers it, besides BTSNYC and our partner! Be part of the VIP Tour of the historic Woolworth Building!
Never heard of the historic Woolworth building? We are sure you have! You’ve certainly seen the criminology expert, Lincoln Rhyme, played by Denzel Washington in the film The Bone Collector, find a clue to the crimes related to the building!
Well, the Woolworth Building, in TriBeCa, is privately owned and operated, and is not open to the public.It was appointed as the tallest building in the world, back in 1913!
Plus, their completely renovated Penthouse was listed for astounding price of $110million, and was relisted in 2019 for $79 million.
We are excited to offer this new, exclusive tour of the normally off-limits Woolworth Building led by building architect Cass Gilbert’s great granddaughter, Helen Post Curry – who runs the Woolworth Building tours.
Cass Gilbert was Curry’s paternal great grandfather and she began running tours in the Woolworth Building on the 100th anniversary of the landmark.
And, as Curry says herself, “there are so many behind-the-scenes secrets about the Woolworth Building”! It’s so exciting to share them with you on this special, insiders tour.
- Special access to the gorgeous mezzanine level;
- The tour will include a guided visit through the spectacular “cathedral-esque” lobby;
- Visit the cellar level where the bank vault is located and where the former entrances to the nyc subway are.
