A long lobby extends out behind the front wall of the building: the outer wall large windows and the inner wall filled with desks, counters, and security doors. Black and white checkerboard marble tile covers the floor in one foot squares, while columns rise up every dozen feet along the walls.
The Federal Building is a bit of a misnomer, since the offices comprise the local City Hall on the east side and the United States offices on the other. To access either, one first must pass through the metal detectors, pass by the security guards, and pass the scrutinizing eyes of the receptionists.
