The gift shop and lower floor is bustling, as tourists admire the beautiful architecture, but for those seeking a quiet space to study or work, there are designated areas for you, where silence is actually observed. It’s a great place to work if you don’t mind squeaky floors. The gift and book shop on the ground floor is great, with everything from novelty bookmarks and tote bags to ex-library books for a great price. There may be a lot to look through but it’s worth the time to find a good deal.

Hard to find a more beautiful library....this building is stunning. Marble is everywhere and be sure to look up at the ceilings....beautiful woodwork. Just walk around and marvel at the architectual wonder of this building....and there are books here too!!!! and places to sit and read and special exhibits. Worth a visit.

This beautiful and famous library is well worth visiting whilst in New York. You probably won't spend very long as a tourist, but do pop in to see the beautiful architecture and design of the place.

When we visited the public library there was an exposition on the sixties we could see for free.

The building is beautiful.

But evenmore impressive the library itself.

Beautiful.

Just hop in and visit it! It is really worth while.

You do not need to spend much time there just enough have a general impression.
