Membership Benefits

The physical setting of QUEST is a major benefit. Quest shares a floor with City College and Brooklyn College in the historic Cunard Building at 25 Broadway. Built in 1921 as New York headquarters for the Cunard Steamship Company, it is just steps from lovely and historic Bowling Green Park at the tip of Manhattan and within a block of Battery Park. The building is surrounded by a wide variety of historic sites such as The Museum of the American Indian in the former US Customs House, Fraunces Tavern, The Museum of American Finance, as well as restaurants and shops.
