Secret Lives Tour: One Wall Street
The Bank of New York Mellon
Wednesday February 26, 2014 at 4 P.M.
The Historic Districts Council invites you to tour three spectacular spaces in the Art Deco tower at One Wall Street. Built across from Trinity Church as the Irving Trust Building, the limestone skyscraper is a private wonder occupied today by The Bank of New York Mellon.
Visitors will explore the bank’s museum, 49th floor reception room, and The Red Room, with its spectacular red and gold mosaics. The museum’s artifacts illustrate the architectural and institutional history of BNY Mellon in Lower Manhattan. On the top floor, gilded shells from the Philippines decorate the angular ceiling of the three-story reception room. The adjacent observation decks provide splendid views in four directions. Christine McKay, BNY Mellon archivist, will guide visitors through the historic building.
Price: $50 Friends of HDC, $75 for Guests
