The Grand Lodge of the State of New York
Welcome to Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons in the State of New York.
Whether you are a Master Mason from New York or elsewhere around the world, or simply interested in Freemasonry or the Grand Lodge of New York, you’ve come to the right place. On this site www.nymasons.org you will find information on programs and projects that exemplify all that we aspire to be, good men made better through the traditions and lessons of Freemasonry. This website has been recently updated, and we hope to expand and improve it further to serve the Brethren and the public over the upcoming year, so feel free to check back with us.
Becoming a Freemason
Membership in a Masonic Lodge is open to all men 21 years of age or older — regardless of race, color, or religion. Our membership requirements are very clear:
You must be of good character and reputation. You’ll have to provide evidence of living a positive life through references from at least one Mason and three other people.
You must believe in a Supreme Being and the immortality of the soul. This belief is not prescribed — rather, we encourage you to be steadfast in the faith of your choice.
