We visited a couple of times during a week in New York and really enjoyed seeing the splendid architecture. There is much to see - the ceiling murals, paintings in the reading room and exhibitions. The history of the building is explained, it was built on a site previously occupied by a water reservoir. We met some interesting characters on the steps outside including a poet who read to us. We hope that the proposed building work does not spoil the character of this fascinating place.
