Down in lower mid-town, this is a great place to spend an hour or two. JP Morgan’s library houses fantastic artifacts and definitely do the one hour tour that explains the history and some of the major pieces. Loved it!

What a glimpse back in time. Amazing to see what Mr. Morgan accumulated in his life time but, alas, he was unable to take it with him

From the outside, one wonders why anyone would bother to visit. Once inside you are treated to a view of what it was like to live in a Gilded Age mansion. Pierpont Morgan was an avid collector of books, art, and ancient artifacts. The Library...More
