One of Manhattan’s grandest lobbies is on its way to becoming a New York City landmark. The Landmarks Preservation Commission calendared the ornate, T-shaped lobby of 200 Madison Avenue earlier this summer and is expected to vote to designate the space as an interior landmark in the coming weeks. Designed by Warren & Wetmore in 1925, the firm behind Grand Central Terminal, the Midtown South lobby features a 200-foot-long through-block arcade that boasts a beautiful vaulted ceiling, polished marble walls, and other stunning elements reflective of the era.
