At your quiet leisure, go grab yourself a good book at the New York Public Library. Residing along the Fifth Avenue, this is a 20th century relic lasting from the initial stages of benevolence. It’s an enormous Beaux-Art architecture with inconceivable decorations. You get the first glimpse upon entry where the two marbled lions, Patience and Fortitude, sit at your welcome along with the Beauty statue of Audrey Munson. Stretching around the entire library is the Bryant Park. And right underneath the park is the library’s massive extension, buried with hundred-thousands of books. Visit its Main Reading room, and remember to blink. For any bookworm, it’s their heaven given its vast collections on literature, humanities and social sciences that comprises of over 43 million books.
