    One of the beautiful building in the city to visit. Free of charge. If you have kids, don't miss their children library section in the basement. Take a copy of their monthly activity calendar.

    I visit this place every time I'm in New York. The architecture, sweeping staircases, art, Gutenberg Bible, and Map Room are highlights. But the main reading room always seems to be closed when I go.
