Building Access

Photo ID Badges
An access card system makes The News Building’s lobby accessible 24 hours a day.  Tenants can gain access to the building by following these access procedures:
  • Tenants must use their access cards to gain access to the elevators.  Turnstiles are located in the lobby.  If a tenant does not have a valid access card, he or she will not be admitted to the elevator lobbies without prior approval from the tenant contact.
  • Each tenant must designate an Authorized Tenant Representative who will act as the administrator of photo ID badges for his or her organization. The authorized representative will be expected to collect ID badges from terminated employees and inform SL Green.
  • ID photos for new employees are taken on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 1 - 2 PM in the Management Office. A request for a new "Employee Access Card" must be submitted into Building Engines before 12 PM on the days photos are taken. 
  • Lost or stolen badges must be reported to the Building Management Office immediately at 212-687-3733. 

  • If you are expecting visitors you can enter their names into the Sharry Workplace system.  Once entered, the lobby security desk will receive the information and print a pass for the visitor.
  • If you are expecting a contractor regarding work being performed in your space, you must alert Building Management and provide all necessary permits.
  • If contractors will be performing any work or making deliveries, a valid Certificate of Insurance and executed Indemnity Agreement must be submitted to the building office along with the work permit.
