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.
