As a 50+ year member of NYCLA and a member of several of its standing committees, I was sad to read in today’s New York Law Journal the reported sale of the home of NYCLA, which has proudly stood on Vesey Street for nearly 90 years.

However, I recognize the challenges the practice of law now require a more electronically compatible environment, to hold our newer practitioners. Gladly the building is landmarked so its edifice will remain unscathed, so at least we may point at what used to be, at a  kinder, gentler time.
