New York Life Building and its Interior

I noticed there were a startling lack of good pictures inside this building, so I decided to take some and share here. Ground floor is open to the public on weekdays

Thanks! I love that pigeons are nesting underneath the eagle. And that bank architecture at the end of the 19th century mimicked church architecture. And the NY Life Bldg is now the Catholic Center. And there must be a metaphor there somewhere.
