The New York Times—Ochs-Sulzberger Family Great Hall of News, unofficially known as the Atrium, is 90 feet high. Much of the upper long wall is taken up by a huge media screen, which passers-by can also see from outside the Newseum. Suspended from the ceiling, you will see a Bell 206B JetRanger III news helicopter and a replica ATS 1 communications satellite. A complex arrangement of staircases takes you from floor to floor. (Tip: When you get tired, use the elevators.)
