New York Public Library

Located adjacent to Bryant Park is the New York Public Library. The library building was officially opened in 1911 at a cost of about $9 million dollars which was about triple the anticipated cost. Seems like a deal at today’s prices. The building has been a national historic landmark since 1965. It’s an impressive book and worth the stop. Next time I go to New York I want to explore the interior.

The main entrance to the library guarded by the ever vigilant lion. Don’t forget to return your books.
