    The Morgan is a melange of library/landmark/museum/historic site and music venue. Upon entry, I went past 2 stone lionesses and admired the beauty of a floor to ceiling rotunda with a semicircular Aspe depicting Roman mythology. I felt like I was stepping back in time to the Italian Renaissance.

    The East Room of the Morgan is one of the great library spaces of the world. I relished the masterpieces like the early Gutenberg Bible and other celebratory pieces. Other prized works are kept in the West Room's solid steel vault. The light wood embedded in a darker wood of the architected bookcases are as precious as the books they are commissioned to store.

    In addition to the ton of books and exquisite architecture, the Morgan also hosts valuable paintings and sculptures such as Rossellini's bust of the Christ Child. My favourite painting was The Little Prince Taking flight. There is a marvellous store with a multiplicity of books reflecting the exhibits as well as other museum keepsakes.

    The Bloomingdale’s library is an internal part of the New York Public library . It’s located on Fifth Avenue and well worth a visit.

    I was in NYC for a tech conference that was being held at the Javits Center. It was an impressive place with lots of glass and metal. Remind me a bit of a modern airport terminal. The staff was friendly and helpful and they had a ton of space. Multiple conferences were going on at the same time, plus people were stoping by coffee and food in the food court and the other little spots inside. I can see why it is the home of the NY Comic Con.

    I came by here to see a special exhibit of Stephen Sondheim's letters and work - it was well worth the trek to visit!

    HERE IS WHERE WE GO. !!!!! Why? Because my/our human people we will feel the under the exhibitions FANTASTIC RESOURCES of Arturo. WHO WAS Arturo? A Puerto Rican Black man! He resolved to get this history so we can unite. Stop fighting between the oppressed. LEARN more. RESEARCH beneath the exhibits. Make appointments. Delight in the microfiche and all the possibilities to follow YOUR choices about Black s . I DID and feel Paul Robeson, he and other communists of color : Claudia Jones..from Trinidad that the usa exploited and Banned. WE CAN BE INSPIRED!

    What a great venue! We loved it. We came to NYC (from Portland, OR) for 33 hours to see "Oresteia" and have some fun in the city - we'd been reading about the production in the NYT for at least 3 months, and wow, I'm so glad we did! The venue is incredible. Beautiful older building, great lighting, I wish we could have just hung out there for longer. Masks were required, which we appreciated, and proof of vax, too. And the location is great - we stayed at the Loews Regency, ate at Barbaresco, and went to the Armory, which was a perfect evening. No cab required, and plenty of time for a great meal, and a perfect play. Thank you to everyone at the Armory for making this such a great space for theater. Can't wait to come back.

    City Hall park sits very obviously in front of City Hall which is downtown Manhattan. There is also a visitors centre. Recommended.

    The Jefferson Market library is an excellent building from the outside but very run down inside. The gardens beside it are nice. Worth a photo of the facade.

    Took the NY Bar Exam in this location. It was very spacious. Despite how many people where there, did not feel too hot nor too cold.

    Best place to start your tour of Roosevelt Island. Buy one of their signature visitors maps for $1.00 and start walking the island. You can also buy snacks and all sorts of souvenirs here as well.

    The tour guides here are very helpful and know the island well.

    The park rangers on Liberty Island were wonderful - courteius, informative, helpful and very welcoming. On our arrival, we met Annie, who was just starting the morning shift. She chatted with us on our way to the Pedestal, showed us where to leave our bags, then checked our tickets. She never stopped smiling.
    To Annie and the other rangers, a big thank you for making us feel so welcome.

    A great pit-stop for whatever weather. Airy, beautiful views in the library where you can drink and eat within reason (no loud crunching but plenty of coffee sipping and sandwich munching). Pull any volume of poetry published in the past 50 years in the US off the shelves, plus plenty of foreign translated into english poetry.

    Much better than expected! The pods are very comfy and provide intimacy. With my earplugs and a mask I had a great night sleep.
    Each pod has lights, plugs (also USB) and linen.
    As a solo traveler it is a good way to have a great location for "little" money

    Although you must be a member of this library to check out books, they do host lectures and other events open to the public. It's a lovely grand building and the children's rooms are most welcoming and attractive. If I lived in New York, I'd definitely join!
