    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.

    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.
