Tours of 41 Cooper Sq Starting March 16

Public tours of 41 Cooper Square, The Cooper Union's new academic building, are finally being offered. I frequently see tourists/visitors being denied entrance into the over-hyped building. Heck, they the guards don't even allow people to take pictures of the lobby. Of course, the following tours also explicitly say that "Photography is Prohibited," but I could probably help you get around that with a private tour. :D Then again, if they did allow you to take pictures, Thom Mayne's reputation (but more of Sciame's) would be ruined. When I have more time, details on how bad the building has fared after less than a year in operation will make your head spin.
