Definitely one of the most amazing and beautiful sights in NYC.
The New York Public Library has over 53 million items.
It is the 3rd largest library in the world and the 2nd largest in the United States.
"Serving more than 17 million patrons a year, and millions more online, the Library holds more than 51 million items, from books, e-books, and DVDs to renowned research collections used by scholars from around the world. Housed in the iconic 42nd Street library and three other research centers, NYPL’s historical collections hold such treasures as Columbus’s 1493 letter announcing his discovery of the New World, George Washington’s original Farewell Address, and John Coltrane’s handwritten score of “Lover Man.”"
