New York Life Building

Built in 1890, the New York Life Building was the first high rise building in Kansas City, Missouri and the first to have elevators. It was one of six buildings built by New York Life Insurance across the United States.  Unfortunately this beautiful building is surrounded by other buildings which makes getting a good photo difficult.  So I am giving pieced photo's today.  Unfortunately the building requires an access card to enter, I've heard the lobby is equally exquisite

That is a wonderful old building. I prefer these to the modern stuff. Have a great weekend!
