Landmark Building
Print

The New York County Lawyers' Association's landmark building was designed by the internationally renowned architect, Cass Gilbert, and dedicated as the "Home of Law" in 1930.

Extensive renovation and redecoration, as well as the installation of a new air conditioning and heating system in 1990, have made the site a practical and comfortable meeting facility without sacrificing the splendor of the original Georgian architecture. From the moment they enter the marble lobby with its 18-foot ceilings and glowing chandeliers, your clients and colleagues will experience the great tradition of elegance provided by the New York County Lawyers' Association's Home of Law.

On the second floor, the magnificent Auditorium, also known as Andrew Hamilton Hall, is modeled after Independence Hall in Philadelphia.  The spacious Lounge, in the Georgian style with its high ceilings and paneled walls, is located directly across from the Auditorium.  Separating the two is an attractive foyer of rare marble and stately columns.  The second floor provides a special setting for public forums, press conferences and receptions.

The fourth floor conference center features a lovely board room and meeting rooms where groups hold discussions and attorneys conduct client conferences, depositions, arbitrations and mediations.
