As much as I love books, in the three years that I've lived in the City, I've never visited the New York Public Library on 42nd and 5th. Located next to Bryant Park, I decided that had to be changed. But, the beautiful weather and smell of freshly cut grass delayed my visit. I found a green metal chair and read the latest book for my Japanese History Class in the park best known as the home for fashion week.
|Yep; my toes are painted blue!|
Around 3:30, the people making out to my right got the better of me, so I said hello to the lions and went inside. I'm sure I'll probably be sure by book lovers around the globe, but in my opinion the library wasn't really all that special. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of titles (and they've even displayed lego lions), but I think NYU's Bobst has spoiled me too much. Sure, the New York Public Library was featured in the Sex and the City movie. But it only has 3 floors, and most of the rooms are reserved for staff only. I guess I just had such high expectations for the library. Oh well; that's my fault. At least I can check it off my least now.
