Go on a tour of the Woolworth Building

The Woolworth Building was the tallest building in the world (at 792 feet) when it was completed in 1913. Today, the historic landmark is dwarfed by skyscrapers near and far, but its stunning lobby, which features stained glass, Byzantine mosaics and other architectural flourishes, is still top of the class. There are tours of the building given in five languages. We show you some of its best features.
