Loved the size, generous layout, classic artwork and wonderful architecture of this beautiful public building. Look out for the small contemporary art gallery in the corridor on one of the upper floors.
Only negative for us was that the library shop had just shut for the evening when we arrived

The library is amazing, full of marble and sculpture, art and history. It is like stepping back in time, the park and cafe next door are also an enjoyable stop, not far from Grand Central, well worth a visit!

This is so much more than just a library and its well worth a visit! The building itself is beautiful and you could just sit in here for a bit of quiet time from the hussle and bustle of the city.
The collections are vast and really I think it's more for the atmosphere that you would visit here.
As a massive fan of 'The day after tomorrow' I was so excited to visit here... it didn't disappoint!
