Special historic documents

My friend and I went to the library and were fascinated by the original documents such as one of the Gutenberg Bibles and original scores by classical composers.

A great new addition to a great old building. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful library and the private rooms that have been restored. There was a children's festival and the place was filled with coloring and laughter. WHAT A GREAT DAY!

Wish I had more time to visit. Stopped in for a quick 1 1/2 hour look while in NYC for an interview. Amazing library - could have spent all day there. Art collections/exhibits were unique and interesting. Museum shop was lovely.

We were visiting NYC as we do about every other year and read a review of the Emily Dickinson exhibit which is at the Morgan for the next few months. It was wonderful and gave us new appreciation of her life. We were also enchanted by the setting which is spectacular and the many manuscripts in the permanent collection. We... More

The Morgan is a wonderul place to visit as they hold great exhibits and of particular of interest to me are the Illuminated Manuscripts of the Middle Ages! Wonderful concerts as well.

The building perfectly blends the old and the new buildings. We were drawn this time by the Emily Dickenson exhibit and were not disappointed. But do not miss the old standards - the amazing manuscripts and plush surroundings and imposing portraits.

Have had the pleasure of visiting this venerable place a couple of times. I love that they've kept the older parts in good working order while providing modern conveniences like a glass-enclosed elevator. I look forward to dining there on my next visit.

We have been to the Morgan before but are always thrilled to return. There is so much to see - not just the exhibits and special exhibitions - but the architecture and design features of the buildings.

This was not a museum I had set out to see. I saw an ad for an exhibit of writings and manuscripts from his collection. I was attracted to the illuminated manuscripts. On the last day of my trip, I separated from my friends and went to see this museum solo. I am so glad I did. The Morgan library... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
