People working here are nice. The place is quite and warm in winter. We came here in a sunny yet cold winter morning and the stained glasses caught the sun light and we were in awe. I do wish this place has a bathroom for...More

Wonderful that this splendid landmark with its Venetian Gothic style spires and turrets was saved from destruction by dedicated local campaigners. In the past, the tower had a bell to warn of fire. It was a court house for a period but now has been...More

The only reason I'm not giving terrible is because of the unique building and Sunday hours I have been in dozens of libraries in Manhattan and several in Brooklyn and Queens and have never come across one that had a children's bathroom but no adult...More

We came here on a geocaching mission and were again happily surprised to find some amazing local culture. This library was a 19th Century Courthouse, used as such until the 1940s. Like the main courtroom is now an adult reading room. The woodwork and stonework...More

Once a year, the steep winding staircase leading to the top of the Jefferson Market Library's Gothic clock tower opens to the public. Check with the librarian for the date -- the lines are long but worth it. We enjoyed the climb, the views and...More

Visited the tower which opens only once a year. Great 360 degrees view. Once inside you need to walk up the stairs but the views are nice.

This is one of the most beautiful buildings in New York City. It's a must stop for any architecture and history buff. The inside is interesting as well. There is a lovely garden in the back.

Ever wondered what's the odd but interesting red-brick building on the West side of Sixth Ave between 9th & 10th? Well, it's currently a NYC public library. But it goes way back to 1833 when it was the location of a country market. The market...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
