Excerpt from the Landmarks Preservation Commission designation report:

The Commission further finds that, among its important qualities, that the Rotunda is an interior space of imposing grandeur, that it is an outstanding example of the most advanced type of stone construction of its period, that this use of stone was an early solution to the problems of fireproofing, that the refined Greek Revival workmanship and detail of the stone and the ironwork is outstanding and that the interior and the exterior of this building express, in architectural form, the ideals of Greek democracy and of the Roman Republic which inspired the Founding Fathers of this nation.
