      Description

      The majestic Beaux Arts building, flanked by the two famous marble lions, Patience and Fortitude, has been the heart and soul of the New York library system for nearly a century. Begun in 1902, the library at the time became the largest marble structure ever built in the United States. In addition to rotating exhibits, beautiful murals, a gift shop, and its exquisite interior, the real jewel of the library remains the vast, recently renovated Main Reading Room, with its massive oak tables occupied by scholars busy reading and quietly typing on their laptops. The reference librarians are famous for their ability to quickly find answers to the many unusual questions asked of them every day.
