NEW YORK NEW YORK, IT’S A HELLUVA TOWN!
In 1913 the Woolworth Building, hailed by architectural critics as an engineering marvel, soared 792 feet high into the lower Manhattan skyline, making it the tallest building in the world at that time. Today, the lobby’s spectacular stained glass, Byzantine mosaics, sculp- tures and murals are being appreciated anew by architectural enthusiasts, historians, artists and visitors from around the world due to the passion and perseverance of original architect Cass Gilbert’s great-grandchildren, Helen Post-Curry and Chuck Post, who operate these entertaining and informative tours. Tours run 30 Minutes, 60-Minutes or 90-Minutes ($15-$45) and encompass the building’s exterior, lobby, history, technology and more. 233 Broadway, New York, NY.
