NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY STEPHEN A. SCHWARZMAN BUILDING (always free): When most people think of the New York Public Library, they think of this building, whose main entrance is flanked by two lions (Patience and Fortitude). The library, of course, is free to visit, and there are often free guided tours of current exhibits as well as free wifi and free internet access. Lectures, readings and special events are also held here.
I love marble and the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building has a lot of it! It’s an incredible building. Definitely a must see while in Midtown. http://ourtravelingblog.com/2015/11/18/stephen-a-schwarzman-new-york-public-library/
The Stephen A. Schwarzman Building is the flagship building in the New York Public Library system but it is so amazing and looks like a museum more than a library. http://ourtravelingblog.com/2015/11/18/stephen-a-schwarzman-new-york-public-library/
