The main building in Fifth Ave between 40th and 42nd street. is the biggest architectural creation of Carr?re and Hastings. The New Yoprk Public Library is one of the world-leading libraries and owns a Bible of Gutenberg and a book of Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica. It was opened on 24 May 1911. The famous lions at the entrance gate were built by Edward Clark Potter.
