New York Public Library

Visiting the New York Public Library has always been on our list of places to visit. We have a tradition of visiting libraries whenever we travel, and this trip was no exception.


We walked by the library on our first night in the Big Apple, and I just took a few photos of the lions outside. I cannot get enough of looking at those lions. Unfortunately, I did not get any photos of the building. There were too many people, and I thought my husband did.

Then on Friday, after we walked through Central Park, and before we saw Phantom of the Opera we finally got to go inside. I was in heaven the whole time.

None of the photos that I took did the architecture justice. I didn’t want to take my camera out and disturb the people who were using the library, so all I had available to me was my phone.

The marble was amazing. I honestly could have spent all day there. I kind of wish I had brought something to work on so I could justify doing just that.

This library was so big, that we got lost a few times while wandering through the halls. I can’t think of a better place in New York City to get lost, so I’m not really complaining.

Once we finished walking the halls of the New York Public Library, we found a gift shop. So naturally, we went inside. I found the most beautiful copy of Peter Pan and it came home with me. Peter Pan is my all-time favorite book, so I couldn’t resist.

I almost got another book on the history of libraries, but it was massive and I didn’t want to carry it around with me all afternoon.

I hope you guys aren’t getting sick of these posts. I’ve just got a few more and then we’ll go back to my usual photography blogs.
