The following tribute speaks for itself:


              "On behalf of the Building Conservation Branch of the National Park Service I 
               would like to express our gratitude to Architectural Iron for their exemplary 
               work. The two new ornamental flagcases, which were detailed, fabricated and 
               erected by Architectural Iron, are the crowning achievement in our restoration 
               efforts at the General Grant National Memorial in New York City. The flagcase 
               project has been a very rewarding endeavor; Architectural Iron must be commended 
               for their commitment to quality and professionalism."
