The lobby features a bright and airy 90-foot-tall skylit atrium. Sea-inspired art and sculpture designs adorn the building’s walls, floors, and ceilings. Artist Jonathan Borofsky created the flying fish sculptures suspended above the atrium floor. Twenty-seven cast stone sculptures created by Thomas Van Dyke of Prospect Park and cast by American Trim Stone of Haskell are inset into the atrium walls and represent local sea life, like starfish, crabs, and seahorses.
