I’ve been wanting to visit the New York Public Library ever since Mr. Big stood up Carrie on their wedding day (jerk) in the Sex and the City movie. If you need a quick refresher, watch that scene here and enjoy Charlotte’s face of wrath. Any of you who have been following my blog for a while will know that I’m a big fan of public libraries. If you’re also the kind of person who experiences a warm fuzziness within the walls of a library then I highly recommend you check out Ali Smith’s collection of short stories aptly named Public Library, of which I’ve written a full blog post about here.
Anyway, keeping that in mind, I was so thrilled to be able to visit New York’s absolutely stunning library yesterday and I’m equally as excited to share some of my snaps with you!
I mean, what a gorgeous building. The interior is even more beautiful and I spent about an hour or so getting lost within its walls. I was also able to sign up to get a membership because I’m in New York for study purposes! How cool!
I thought it was worth mentioning that the NYPL is located within the beautiful Bryant Park (see below) so it’s the perfect place to grab a book and a cold drink and hang out to read the afternoon away.
