PHOTOS: The Scene At The Lobby Of Trump Tower

The lobby of Trump Tower has become one of the most photographed places since the election. Over the past week, it has been bustling as President-elect Trump met with several possible cabinet picks and continued outreach to foreign leaders.

People have come and gone — some of them business contacts, some of them potential cabinet secretaries, many powerful. As they pass through the lobby, the press looks on from a kind of a velvet-roped area not too far from the elevators. While some have stopped to talk to the media, the meetings themselves are well out of view as they take place on the 26th floor at Trump Tower.

But the press and those meeting with the president-elect aren't the only people who are making their way through the lobby.

Since the lobby is open to the public, tourists pass through wearing their Trump garb and posing for selfies. All of which combined makes for a highly unusual scene — particularly given the serious nature of the meetings happening upstairs.
