New York city has some wonderful libraries but few are as impressive as the 42nd Street Library.
I remember going there as a child and always finding it impressive but very intimidating. I didn't appreciate the workmanship until I was much older. Sometimes we take things for granted like free libraries. You can learn more about the history of the library in this video. Built over the city's water reservoir, and as the narrator explains still watering the city, this is a great place for a day excursion with the family. Children always love greeting the lions of the 42nd Street Library.
