90 min tour is a must! You can learn a lot and see hidden gems. Our guide Ed Welter went beyond to show us everything.

Although I haven't seen every New York office building lobby, I'm sure none compares with this one. Don't wait. There'll never be another one like it.

So much great information about such an old, beautiful building. The tour was very informative and interesting. I went on the 60 minute tour on a Sunday - I would highly recommend at least the 60 minute tour, if not the 90 minute one. The lobby there is amazing!

Our tour guide gave some great insight on the building and its architecture. He was very knowledgeable about the history behind the building and the people involved in its development. It was a fascinating glimpse into history.
