Buildings We Love: the NY Public Library Flagship

The Library’s Main Branch in Midtown (5th Ave and 42nd St) is a beautiful historical landmark that merits regular visits from all New Yorkers. It was renamed after Steven A Schwarzman in 2008 upon his agreement to donate $100 million dollars toward the facility’s renovation, which is currently in progress. Above is a photo of the Rose Main Reading Room, a grand display of wooden tables and chairs and large chandeliers.The marble, brick and stone building was originally designed by Carrere and Hastings and was completed in 1911. British Architect Norman Foster (Foster and Partners) is responsible for the renovation design.
