This building was not open when we were there - around noon on a Monday. All we could do was to peek in window at the diner.

My husband was less then impressed when I said we were going to the Woolworth Building but in the end he didn't want to leave. Trust me, stop in and take a step back in time. It is small, but that matters not.
