The interior entrance to the Tennis Court Wing was only accessible by walking through the Second Bachelor’s Wing. Because of this set-up, during the Vanderbilt era, women could only view a tennis match by using the outside entrance. Shown here:

Today, this entrance leads to the College’s Human Resources Department.

The Boar’s Head Urn was created by Sylvain Salieres, a noted artist who created all the interior sculpture at Grand Central Terminal.
