A Look inside NYCs secret Free Mason Lodge HQ | Take a look!

• The Grand Lodge of New York is located in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City and it is the headquarters for all Freemasons in the state.

• Although the building looks like a normal structure from the outside, inside there are elaborate rooms and lodges that hint at what goes on behind the scenes at this secretive organization.

• Insider recently took a tour of the building, getting a glimpse at rooms like the Grand Lodge Room, which can seat 1,000 people for state-wide meetings.

• The building is also filled with smaller "lodges" that are themed, like the Gothic Room and the Colonial Room.

There are six million Freemasons living in the world right now.

With a number that high, it should be easy to find out what exactly a Mason is and what they believe, but the organization has a reputation for keeping tight-lipped about what goes on behind closed doors.

Freemasonry can be traced back to the medieval ages, but there are still lodges all over the world that host meetings. In fact, New York City is home to the Grand Lodge of New York, the headquarters for the state. Incredibly, despite being one of the most secretive organizations in the world, they welcome guests into the building every day for tours.

Insider took one of these tours and saw firsthand where all their meetings take place. Keep reading to find out what it's like inside.

imageFREEMASON TEMPLE

Save for a Freemason flag that hangs outside the building, the temple is largely nondescript. Located on 23rd street, the massive building takes up an entire city block.

From the street, the Masonic Hall looks like a normal building, lined with windows. At night, however, there are no lights that come from those windows because they are a facade. The Freemasons blocked out the windows in this building to protect their privacy.

Even the front entrance looks completely ordinary on the city block.image

In the center of each room, there is a padded table that is reserved for praying.



Masons place their
[spoiler - click to view]

— or whatever text they believe in — on top and then kneel in front of it. The number three motif continues here, as there are only three candles that surround the praying area.





The same setup can be found in every room in the building, including the Gothic Room.



The Gothic Room is modeled after Sainte-Chapelle in Paris and is heavily influenced by French architecture.

My friend got asked to join. You have to be invited. He went to one meeting but didn't join. They require a monthly membership fee. I have another friend who claims to be a mason. Claims they got him out a few jams with the law and got him jobs....but they couldn't help him for the home invasion he got convicted for....

Best “frat” to join. Hell, most folks PSI Omegas and shut are apart of it. Literally, all my friends from service that joined. All work CAREERS, not jobs in the GS sector at 100k or better. Based upon referrals not education and experience. My old 1SG is making 100k as a GS13 or some sh*t. Dude has a HS diploma and maybe a batch of credits from JC. Another friend got his packets for warrant and sh*t signed quick, like whole board done and acceptance in 1 month. These folks run everything... from executive levels. At least in the military and GS sectors. Wish I had joined, but still have the Hella Shrine hand coin on my desk, which I was offered my last deployment.

You ain't gotta be invited... They advertise on fu*king t.v. I see the ads whenever I see my folk in Maryland. My grandma was one and two good homies of mine are. Idk how this is the headquarters for them when I live by one right on Lafayette ave and walk past other ones that are clearly and plainly marked. Pretty sure there are fu*ked up people there like anywhere else. People are fu*ked up

your friend that does home invasions is not only a loser, but a liar.
masons invite and a*sociate those who can provide from their family, not those who steal from others. it would be an oxymoron to say the masons helped you out of a jam. but hey, im on boxden responding to a fu*king moron who gets told bold faced lies by his "friend".

you need some new friends, or maybe you aint sh*t either.

You don't have to get invited and they don't recruit that's a myth.



"A lodge in your area isn't trying to keep people from joining..... Quite the opposite... It's a struggle for many lodges to attract new members. But what a local Lodge is interested in is knowing you are a good guy. To know you better, they may invite you to public social functions, or perhaps a festive board (it's a light meal and maybe a drink after a lodge meeting is over)."

"Reach out to your local lodge and meet the guys. Then ask for a petition"

I work in the building that their HQ is in. You can take a tour of their HQ but they don't show you all the rooms. It's pretty crazy because when they have meetings the lobby is full with old white dudes that look like they have money.

I thought Free Masons don't accept women. I know the Order of the Eastern Star does.


Just looked it up and I am correct



Modern Freemasonry broadly consists of two main recognition groups. Regular Freemasonry insists that a volume of scripture be open in a working lodge, that every member profess belief in a Supreme Being, that no women be admitted (although, in some jurisdictions, those who transition to women after being initiated may stay; see below), and that the discussion of religion and politics be banned. Continental Freemasonry is now the general term for the jurisdictions which have removed some, or all, of these restrictions.

If it’s so secret how come people know so much about it? This is a real question. Can I get a real answer if anyone knows?
