We went on a Friday at 7pm for free admission. This is well worth seeing if you enjoy beautiful architecture, interiors, and a beautiful library. The Library's web site gives a very accurate description of the 4 rooms that are available to visit. The crowd...More

The Gutenberg Bible on display - they have more than one - is pretty interesting. But, you should really attend the guided description of that room to get the backstory on the entire collection and the Gutenberg. The temporary exhibits were very worthwhile on serpents...More

Any place that has a Guttenberg Bible on display along with William Blake’s hand drawn work would already be impressive. Add special exhibitions and gorgeous, ornate environs and you have a great place to spend an afternoon in Midtown.
