The New York Public Library!
OK, so this is crazy. This is the New York Public Library, and I don't think I have been here for perhaps 40 years! That is stupid! I think I saw an exhibit of some documents or antiquarian books at the time. But it is nuts that I don't come here! This is a photograph of the 5th avenue entrance of the building. I photographed with trees and without trees, and prefer this one.
This is the McGraw Rotunda. It is rich with these ceiling murals and wall murals that illustrate the history of the written word.
And this is the huge Rose Main Reading Room, which is as long as a football field. What an amazing place this library is. And these are only two photographs of the inside, on only one floor. I was so impressed that I signed up for a library card!
