The exterior of Ellis Eads Hall is actually the Alexander Hamilton Customs House  designed by Cass Gilbert, and also home to the Museum of the American Indian. The hall name sits below one of the four sculptures by Daniel Chester French, who also sculpted Abraham Lincoln for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.

The interior is another location all together, but not far – Cipriani’s Wall Street, formerly the New York Merchants Exchange. There, Penn from Penn & Teller does some sideshow tricks, swallowing fire and setting the stage for a literacy fundraiser.
