Pretty but disappointing. Not all parts of the library are accessible. Still worth a visit - particularly on a rainy day, as New York seems miserable when it rains.

As a tourist you are obviously not going to be taking out any books to read, but the architecture and interior design is a must see. The wood, the desks with the lamps.. all harken back to yrs gone by.

Nice place to visit if you are in the area. Not sure if I would go out of my way to get there.

Some of the reading rooms were closed on the day we visited, maybe that makes a difference.

This building is beautiful. It usually has a special exhibition and all are quite good. Even the shop is great.
