A grand, but otherwise bland, facade.

A quiet back door entrance, good for avoiding TMZ.

A place to relax and read over the firm's derivatives exposures.

A lovely interior in soothing pastel colours needed after a busy day shuttling up to Treasury.

A salon for hosting guests, perhaps other bailed-out captains of industry?

Dinner in grand style, certainly not as rushed as the Merrill deal.

A bit McMansion though, isn't it?

The kitchen is rather redeeming though, with a great view of the television for CNBC snacking.
