Hello I think it was very rude and impolite to kick someone out just for visiting and even filming in the building I know since 9/11 you have to be careful but you have alot of people who come to New York as tourist that like to see where movies were shot Adam has a very respectful youtube channel and was just looking at the building it is a Historic site I want you to know if I ever come to visit New York your building would not be on my list to visit you should appreciate someone respecting such a Historic building. If people cant visit why not just tear down the building

The security guards chased us out of the building.
Didn't even give my 10 year old a chance to take a photo by the globe. Total disappointment.

The lobby is now closed to visitors. Not clear why as people were passing through. Security (unusual unfriendly) said you couldn’t stay to look. Be aware. Sad times for an iconic building.

We came by during the day to look at the globe and learn about the building. Managed to walk in but lasted about two seconds before security rushed over and told us to leave. They were polite but yeah... didn't feel great to get thrown out after walking 20 minutes to go see it.

Just a warning incase anyone's considering going to take a look, you will probably be treated the same.
Probably another victim of COVID.

Art deco style with a great carving in the wall outside. Built in 1930. It is a landmark building . Globe inside is cool.

The art deco Daily News Building has been designated both a New York City Landmark and a National Historic Landmark. Designed by Raymond Hood and John Mead Hassells and opened in 1930. This is an impressive skyscraper with a spectacular lobby. In the center of the lobby is a black dome above a huge model of the globe. There are interesting tidbits of information all around the globe. There are impressive vintage weather instruments on one wall and the story of the building’s history on another wall, all beautifully restored to their Art Deco grandeur. Fantastic! For film buffs, the building served as The Daily Planet In Superman: The Movie. Just a short stroll down 42nd St from Grand Central.

Walked through the freezing rain in January just for a Daily Planet Photo Op. My husband and son are comic book fanatics and it was on our "must do" list. The building had already closed for the night but the night guard was able to let us into the lobby for a photo.

There are a number of gorgeous art deco buildings in the area of the Daily News Building.

The Daily News' lobby is stunning with its large rotating globe! A treat for the eyes, and fun to read the various fact plates.

Not to mention that Superman was filmed there, so all the geek love for that!

Well this place no longer is the daily news but superman was shot here. Its a must visit in nyc. We enjoyed reading about the building and news desk. It was great seeing pics of clark kent and lois lane. There is this giant globe in the lobby which we loved. There is a plaque outside which you cannot miss. It was a fun visit.
