We stopped here during our trip on a rainy day. The library offers something for all; architecture, history, literature. My personal favorites were the book train, which brings books to a reading room from other places in the library, and the original Winnie the Pooh...More
We have passed in front of the New York Public Library many times but never stopped. This time we decided to go in. We split, and I ended up with one of the kids in the Children's Center at 42nd Street. For my surprise, the...More
I walked past the public library while trying to find my way to the Empire State Building. I wouldn't have even guessed that it's a library because the architecture reminded me of a museum like The Met, but I was wrong. The large PUBLIC LIBRARY...More
This beautiful building deserves its twice-daily public tours given by library staff and volunteers. Highlights are the main entrance (the big iconic lions on Fifth Avenue), the Children's Corner, and the Second and Third Floors. Definitely a "wow!" when you look at the long tables,...More
Take a step back in time with a visit to the various rooms at the New York Public Library at 5th Avenue and 42nd Street. Two favorite areas of the library are the reference rooms and the old map room.

Very few places are as magnificent as the Public Library. I have been visiting the old Library
from 1970. It was an old, dusty, dark place to read, but you follow the ceremonial initiation,
to be part of the Library as an old nationality, because...More
There is an entire room dedicated to children’s books, often with its own exhibits that are relate to to children- when I was there in October it was the original Winnie the Pooh. Many kids all over of many ages

They did discuss the Winnie the Pooh toys during the tour but there was no mention of them going on tour. I suppose anything is possible though. You can try sending them an email to ask about it on their website. It won’t let me post a link, but if you Google New York Public Library contact, you’ll find the right page.

We visited the 911 museum and sol on the same day.. just make a reasonably early start and you can spend the full day exploring round that area. We also did wall Street with the charging bull, century 21.. plenty of good places to eat in that area. We had a late lunch at lukes lobster..which was really good. We had a booked to see Chicago in the evening.. in hindsight I would not book a show or special event in the same day..We were pushed for time.

One of the things my kids remember most fondly is walking the Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan. You should consider that option--there is a picturesque place to take pics of Manhattan called the Brooklyn Promenade. Then you get on the bridge and walk back. There are a lot of people (and inconsiderate cyclists) who do the Brooklyn Bridge.) It's iconic! :) Also, have you considered bicycling Central Park? You'll cover more territory more easily.
Suggestions for 4th trip to New York please! (8 Replies)
Hello all. Well, I've not been in NY for ten years and suddenly found myself doing three trips to NY within a year. To say I'm an addict is an understatement! Will be in NY from March 2 - 7 to catch West Side Story at the Knockdown Centre in Maspeth. I will be with two other New York newbies whom I will need to do some touristy things. I will have about 1.5 days to myself which I intend to enjoy fully. Any suggestions please? I love food, museums and anything a bit offbeat and...More

Only you can answer this question. My only suggestion is that since you are traveling solo, do what you've always wanted to do but didn't because no one else wanted to do it.
