The building is well worth a peek if you are walking by - or escaping the rain for just a minute like we were. Fun gift shop, and the original Winnie the Pooh stuffed bear int he childrens area.

Whether you just take a photo in front of the Lions or you actually go inside, It is a must see in NYC... The park behind it is sublime.

Absolutely stunning inside. Unfortunately the main library area was under construction but I highly suggest going to the top of the library and working your way down. It is absolutely stunning. No wonder Carrie wanted to get married here.

Beautiful. It's smaller than I thought it would be but worth the trip. Has great artwork tucked in every corner.

One of the best free things to do in NY, the library is a beautiful setting. The staff are very friendly & one of the security guards kindly pointed out the steps/area of the SATC wedding. Cross the street outside the library & pop into Bravo Pizzaria to keep you going whilt you continue to Grand Central Station.
