This unique building in Bryant Park is well worth the time to visit for not only the wonderful and extensive book collection but its architectural design. You can just go in and sit and read a book or relax from walking the city.

This library was huge but had to be quiet because it is a library! We didn’t take any kind of tour but doing it ourself was enough. Spent about 2 hrs but wasn’t the most exciting thing to do, wouldn’t recommend for kids as there isn’t many kids things though there was a Winnie the Pooh exhibition on whilst we were there but we didn’t visit it.

Fantastic building with great interior design and book collection. Lots to see. The shop has some good items to buy and there is an Amys bread cafe

I visited here as part of my trip because my brother is such a huge fan of reading and libraries. To say you've been here is cool, and it's definitely a beautiful library. But this is definitely just a quick stop, take a couple pictures and go kind of thing. There are a lot of people there reading and researching and so on so make sure to stay quiet.
