The building’s interior and part of its exterior were designed by architect Stanford White; its entryway gaslights are among the few remaining examples in New York City. It is reportedly the oldest club in its original clubhouse. The tour is one hour. Cost is $20 3T Insider Club Members and $30 for non-club members. We will then go to the bar (wine or cocktail additional.) May 20 at 3 PM. Get tickets here.
