Tours are given Monday through Friday (except bank holidays) every hour from 9:30 am to 2:30 p.m. Note: there is no 12:30 p.m. tour. The tour is free, lasts about an hour, and each tour can accommodate up to 30 visitors. Because of the tour’s popularity, the Federal Reserve’s Public Information Department suggest you reserve a spot by calling the above phone number or e-mailing a request to FRBNYTOURS@ny.frb.org. Tour tickets that confirm the date and hour will be mailed out in advance and must be presented to the tour guide upon arrival at the Bank.
Strict security regulations require all visitors to pass through a metal detector and deposit cameras, briefcases, cellphones and other packages in a locked cabinet in the lobby.
