Nominal Me

I'm falling in love with my camera and taking photos everywhere I go. That, combined with my passions for politics, sports, religion and other things we all agree on, makes this blog persist.

Things To Do In New York: New York Public Library

When you're in New York City, you really have to check out the Fifth Avenue Library.

The building is not just a library, but a work of art itself.

The three story structure is an impressive, and worth walking around even if you couldn't care less about books.

Inside the reading rooms, you will find impressive paintings of various styles.

You'll meet exciting and glamorous people...and watch them read books.

The library is known for it's lions outside, but there is plenty to see inside as well.

There is a quiet beauty to the place.

Love is in the air!

The third floor hallway has some of the most impressive artwork you'll see in a library. Oh no, is that the Ten Commandments! Someone call the Supreme Court!

This art encourages tourists to stop by, which gives great opportunities for people-watching.

It is, first and foremost, a library however.

It's even got these quaint things called...books.

The place where people pick up their books has a old-train-station quality to it.

The ceiling, appropriately enough, has a sky painted on it.

It's a great place to read, research, and look around. Visit it on 42nd Street and 5th Avenue in Manhattan!
