Gorgeous library. Getting a card to print was like a wild goose chase, though.
Nice architecture, nice place to spend time with yourself
A gorgeous landmark that has turned more into a museum than a library, unfortunately.
One word.. It's perfect!
İconic building. Must ser
The main room will be opened in 2016
Unbelievable place for the book lovers.
Be respectful of others if you are taking pictures, turn shutter off and don't use flash
Follow signs to the South Court and go down. See where the stone changes from polished white to rough black? It’s the leftover foundation from a giant block-sized pyramid called the Croton reservoir.
Such a fascinating atmosphere...
Great free wifi
Beautiful building. Visit the Maparium. You can stop here and use WiFi and charge your devices.
👍🇹🇷hello from in turkey
You can't actually go in the library parts, which I understand but am still disappointed.
The children's reading room was fun for the kids. The main reading room was closed for restoration.
Such a nice place to spend time there is free wifi if you need it
Astounding number of young laptop people busy tapping away...but at what?
Serene and beautiful.
Great gift store, they sell lovely and original books.
I work from here everyday. It's the most beautiful home for books I've ever been in. Lots of little places to study and get work done. Free wifi all day!!!
Go to the map collection room on the ground floor and ask about "Building Inspector." The foundations of historically accurate #VR worlds are being built there and you can pitch in too.
if it's your first time here, don't be afraid to ask for information
Exhibits, tours, events, stacks, 100% accessible, outdoor spaces
Great studying spot despite the tourists. Fast and stable wifi. The guards do prevent people from bringing drinks into the reading rooms.
Public Eye, 175 years of sharing photography.
Paradise!!!! Be sure to visit main reading room. Be quiet and no flash please!
It is beautiful inside, nice place to relax
Must see in NY. I'm not usually the one to visit libraries but this one is worth it! Just wonder around and admire the architectural features and decorations in the various rooms
Great exhibitions and amazing architecture
Quiet to study
The arts and architecture room is the best choice for working
Great place to get quiet work done, power outlets and good chairs... As long as you don't mind the tourists occasionally walking through.
Main room was closed and opposite one reserved, no luck.
Beautiful building. Try not to disturb much as people are studying and reading. They also have free exhibitions.
Wonderful library; interesting tour.
Love how its an architectural maserpiece
Lot of reconstruction when I went (April 2015) not much to do or see.
Step into history and soak in the incredible architecture.
You can go inside and marvel at the grandeur of the architecture .... Specially on the 3rd floor
Amazing place! The architecture is beautiful, they have nice exhibitions and quiet places to read.
Amazing place to get work done + great resources
Such beautiful architecture. Also be sure to stop by the bookstore on the third floor. Lots of high quality mementoes and Americana there.
Check out the AMAZING print collection. It is the largest and best in the US.
Great photography exhibit.
Beautiful library. Could spend hours exploring the building itself. Definitely worth going to as. New Yorker too. Not just a tourist attraction
