On my way out of New York, I've been ticking things off of my NYC bucket list. While I've been to the library many times in my sixteen years in NYC, I somehow never made it to the main branch building on 5th Avenue -- the one you see in movies. It's a research library and event space nowadays, not a lending library, but totally worth a walk through. It's a beautiful building. Unfortunately, due to ongoing repairs, we weren't able to go into the famous and glorious Rose Reading Room, so I guess I'll just have to go back again! Nonetheless, there was plenty to see. Come with me for a looksie:
I particularly enjoyed the "Public Eye" exhibit, all about photography.
I even found a real working phone booth (and had some fun taking goofy photos with my cell phone and the phone booth)!
Thanks for stopping by!
