Day 652

Masonic Hall

October 12th, 2013

Magnificently renovated by the Grand Lodge of New York over the course of a decade in the 1980s and '90s, Masonic Hall on West 24th Street, with its "dozen stately chambers with a dozen architectural themes, where visitors travel from the Ile de la Cite to the Acropolis to the Valley of the Kings in the time it takes to ride an elevator", is open to the public for free tours on a regular basis. The is the Grand Lodge Room; you can see a few of my shots of other meeting rooms here, and you can see many more photos from two other visitors here and here.

    Interesting photo. One of the very few you’ve taken/posted of an interior space. :-)

    I was in NYC over the Thanksgiving Holiday and went on the tour. What a wonderful experience. The tour guide — Gene, a volunteer — was very gracious. And informative. We saw almost all of the 13 Lodge Rooms. I highly recommend it.

    thanks for the background data.
