Place Matters Profile


Susan S. (Cooper Union)

The New York Public Library in February when the classical design of the third floor reading room contains the warm, sour smell of books and time stirred well by the presence and constant movement of a mysterious dapper white-haired Spanish man.

Bill Abrams

The Library is a wonder of architecture.
