Located on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, the New York Public Library (Stephen A. Schwarzman Building) is the only facility of its kind, with both world-class research and circulating collections that are free and open to the general public. Now in its second century, the library offers services at 4 major research centers and a network of neighborhood libraries throughout Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island. Above are some of the images that I made of the magnificent interior and artwork when I visited the library for the first time.
