Inside The New York Public Library
The Stephen A. Schwarzman Building

Published on Sep 30, 2014
Discover the story behind one of New York City's most iconic buildings, the New York Public Library's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. Located at 42nd St and 5th Avenue, the landmark building is the center point of the NYPL system which includes 88 neighborhood branches and four scholarly research centers across the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island.

The non-circulating graduate-level collections were initially formed from the consolidation of the Astor and Lenox Libraries, and have evolved into one of the world's preeminent public resources for the study of human thought, action, and experience -- from anthropology and archaeology, to religion, sports, world history, and literature.
