Event: Alexander Hamilton US Custom House Tour – March 8th

BNC Gotham invites you to join us on this tour of the Alexander Hamilton US Custom House and the following luncheon. Come explore this beautiful, historic building and learn about its past as the duty collections point for the port of New York. Currently serving as the host of the National Museum of the American Indian on the first three floors, this seven story structure is a magnificent example of American Beaux Art design. Envisioned by Cass Gilbert, and completed in 1907, the building was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1972. The inside is just as stunning as the exterior, complete with columns, statues, marble, and hand painted murals. This trip includes a visit to the Collector’s Office with woodwork from Tiffany Studios. This event is a must for architect enthusiasts and history buffs.

Following the Custom House we will take lunch at a restaurant in the area.

Please see the bulletin for further details.
