I had photos of the NY Public Library in a list of most beautiful libraries in the world and since then I’d been wanting to visit it.
Today I got the chance
The NYPL nearly 53 million items and 92 locations and is the second largest public library in the United States (behind the Library of Congress) and the third largest in the world.
Its main reading room was contemporaneously the largest of its kind in the world at 77 ft (23 m) wide by 295 ft (90 m) long, with 50-foot-high (15 m) ceilings
The Mc Graw Rotunda
