New York Public Library, New York City: 61 reviews and 105 photos
After the Library of Congress in Washington DC, the New York Public Library is the largest in the United States with several million volumes in holdings and manuscripts. Finished in the early decades of the 20th century, and combining three private holdings at the time (the Astor, Tilden and Lenox libraries, all inscribed on the entablature), the building was largely funded by Andrew Carnegie. Today, the front steps form the perfect place to relax for daytrippers, and the library itself is a popular destination for tourists.
