Important Information About Our NYC Showroom Re-Opening

In accordance with New York City recommendations, our New York City showroom is now able to re-open more fully, as long as we follow the rules set out by the State of New York, which include guidelines stating responsible parties must limit the building to no more than 25% of the maximum occupancy and masks will be required as well as social distancing measures enforced.

Beginning Tuesday, September 8, 2020, the Hastings showroom will be open on a daily basis.
The new hours will be Monday – Friday 10:30am to 5:00pm.
A&D Building Guidelines

Please note that these guidelines were provided by the A&D Building. These precautions are to ensure everyone’s safety.

Vornado will conduct mandatory thermal camera temperature checks of all personnel, tenants, visitors and contractors before granting access to the building and common areas. This protocol will be implemented each time an individual comes into the building. If the initial scan indicates an individual has an elevated body temperature of 100.4°* or higher, a secondary check with a contact thermometer will be administered by a trained medical professional to validate the measurement. If both readings are 100.4° or higher, the individual will be asked to leave the building. Those individuals who are asked to leave the building should notify their employer and comply with CDC guidelines as well as their employer’s protocol before returning. In compliance with ADA and EEOC regulations, Vornado will not store any personal information for anyone undergoing this protocol.

In order to best manage your safety and follow social distancing guidelines, you are required to enter and exit the building using the specifically designated doors on 58th Street.

Guidelines for shopping the A&D Building
  • Masks or face coverings must be worn in all common areas; including, but not limited to, lobby, elevators, stairways, hallways, washrooms, and food hall.
  • Masks will be offered at the front desk for anyone entering the building without appropriate coverage.

  • We ask that you practice social distancing of at least 6’ distance from others in all common areas and in showrooms.
  • Gatherings of any kind are not permitted in the building.
  • All elevators are running on normal service. The new capacity per cab is 4 passengers maximum.
  • Signage throughout the lobby and on each floor will direct you to the method used to ensure appropriate safety and social distancing.
  • One person will be allowed in the public restrooms at a time.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers will be provided in the lobby and on each floor.
  • We are committed to providing our showrooms and guests with a clean and healthy environment and will continue to follow CDC cleaning guidelines for common areas.
  • We will continue to maintain our enhanced and aggressive cleaning protocols for all common areas of our building using approved products and protocol from public health agencies.

The health and safety of everyone is so important, and at the same time, we know that everyone is anxious to continue moving forward with their projects, and we are pleased that New York City has reached a stage where we can offer regular business hours.
