It wasn't when they were designing the building! That was an 
all-Westinghouse project, even though CBS entered the picture towards 
the end of the work.

When was this? It was never made explicitly off-limits during my time 
there, and since when would management have had any right to tell 
employees (especially AFTRAns and other unionized employees) where they 
can and can't go when they're off the clock?

During my time there, we held several farewell parties for departing 
co-workers at the Ground Round. I remember Jacquie Goddard's in 
particular, when she was headed off to work for Mayor Menino. (Where is 
Jacquie now, I wonder?)

And yes, 68 is still in the building, last I checked.
