Really nice lobby, took the elevator to 30th Floor. Small museum and outdoor observation deck which affords good views of surrounding buildings. The lobby and elevators are very pretty.

An older building that has been kept up nicely and has some history on display. The view is okay. I am sure that before the skyline had expanded upward, the sight lines were more dynamic.
