Happy hundredth Woolworth Building! & A fun weekend to-do for the kids!

A Gargoyle just chilling …

On August 10th, the Skyscraper Museum (39 Battery Place) will host “Woolworth’s Gargoyles” to highlight its “Woolworth Building @ 100″ exhibit. That’s right, Woolworth turned 100 years young this year!

Lucky kids ages 3 to 10 will learn about Gothic architecture while getting a quick tour of the Cathedral of Commerce’s iconic gargoyle statues. Afterward, visitors will get the chance to make their own gargoyles. That’s right. I said it. MAKE. YOUR. OWN. GARGOYLES.

Tickets are only $5 to the public, $2.50 for seniors and students, and free for members and children under 12. Purchase them by e-mailing: education@skyscraper.org OR call 212-945-6324 by 5 p.m. by Friday, August 9.
