“The best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Best library I've been to in my life! Beautiful marble throughout, the whole place is just beautiful, feels more like a hotel come museum than a public library!

“Scene from Day After Tomorrow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

My teens loved this as it features in lots of film. Nice space - very grand scale - and next to a lovely park. Lots of seating outside and a good place to rest and lunch. Well worth a visit.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

I have passed the library many times but finally had a chance to go in and take a tour. It was very interesting. The library is very beautiful and is certainly worth a visit. Unfortunately, the main reading room is currently closed for construction.

“Nice - on a rainy day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

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.
