Well worth a stop - a small coffee shop in side but the architecture is beautiful. Visit all three floors, and stop off in the childrens section to see the original toys that inspired AA Milne to write Winnie The Pooh

This is not always on peoples list of "must-dos" but don't overlook it. Even if you just take a quick walk thru. They often have great exhibits but again the architecture is king! And look up! Such a beautiful building.

What a cool and beautiful building! The Christmas tree in the lobby was beautiful! Massive marble building with lots to just walk around and explore.

Very nice gift shop!

located on 5th avenue, the library is a great place to check out even just for a few mins due to it's stunning architecture. When inside it really feels like you're in the past
