If you are in the area and have any curiosity about Freemasonry or architecture or history, then I recommend that you visit. There are free guided tours of the various Masonic rooms (each with different styles), and the guides answer any questions you may have...More
If you are interested in freemasonry or interesting architecture then I recommend a visit to the New York grand Lodge, they have volunteers who conduct a free guided tour of the building from 10am most mornings and it is very good and really informative.
We went for a quick visit on sunny afternoon and arrived just as a tour was about to start. After providing photo ID, we were introduced to our tour guide, Marty, allowed us to leave our bags in his office. Myself, my wife and one...More
I had Marty all to myself for about 2 hours and while the rooms were amazing, he brought the whole thing to life with his jokes and enthusiasm. I can't recommend the tour enough. I had a delightful time.
This is a fascinating building, housing a number of beautiful Masonic lodge meeting rooms, with spectacular decorations and amazing history. Much of the building and decorations date to 1906, and a restoration in the 1980s, done with great attention to detail, elevated it even more....More
On the recommendation of a member I met several years ago I visited this location to see if what he had said was true. Unfortunately the tour leader did not come into work that day but there were several displays that presented interesting masonic artefacts...More

We had a great tour with Brother Carlos who expressed his passion for Masonry. We toured many rooms each with different themes. We were able to take photos as Brother Carlos explained the meanings of the architecture. A great trip and free!
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
