“NY Public Library”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

We briefly popped in to see what was inside. The old architecture was amazing and so was the children's books expedition. On some of the ceilings there were amazing frescos that we haven't seen since we went to Italy last year. If your around I would definitely pop in.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

The New York Public Library is filled with history even before stepping in to the gorgeous marble filled rooms and steps. The weekend I attended, there was an interactive exposition of world classic children's literature, from Dr.Seuss to The Wizard Of Oz, as well as international classics. You do not have to be a child to enjoy this exposition. The library itself is a historical monument worth the visit. Will definitely visit again.

“Taking Mom to New York”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

We did not make it in it was closed every time we went by. The outside is beautiful and want to see it inside. Bryant Park is great and seems like something going on there all of the time.
