I almost wish I were a New Yorker so I could visit this library regularly. This is heaven on earth for a person who loves books.

This is the flagship library and the architecture is impressive, but it's difficult to study here with all the tourists.

Very big library. Clerk getting my card was incredibly nice, friendly, and I felt she was the nicest person there. Touristy in the sense of people in the Rose Room were taking pictures and the actual users of the library may have been disturbed. Otherwise, neat and right by Bryant Park. Get a card, checkout a book and sit in Bryant Park to read!

Didn’t think it would be much to remember but proved to be extremely enjoyable. It’s unbelievable the amount of information and learning that has passed through here.
