  • Great place to visit and rest your legs. Of course it is possible to do a search too, but for those who are just passing through, it's worth it to sit a bit in one of the reading rooms and enjoy the site.

  • From most toward Central Park in the morning, visit the natural history museum. Stopped in on the way back to Times Square area into shopping mode, return to the South and then walking down the filming of die hard and you've got mail. It is a position as part of the Lincoln Center located along with the outdoor sculpture art library. Next was a Juilliard School of music, New York, low opened the area followed by a layer of building it was.

  • Beautiful hotel and beautiful photographic exhibition on the corridors and stairways. The library itself, however, is not open to the public (rightly so) because there are people who study and work, so the visit is reduced to a room. Very pretty is the part for children, with many books, computers and the real puppets that inspired the story of Winnie the Poo.

  • Great space and information (if you can find it). Half of the staff are wonderful and helpful, and the other half don’t want a single human being to ask them a question. Ever. The piece of music I wanted was said online to be available. With about 15 librarians help, it still could not be found. 2 hours of searching and they decided the 2 copies of the piece were probably “misshelved” or someone moved it. ;(
  • What a treasure. Not only are there changing exhibits related to performing arts, but the stacks and other available materials seems to be unparalleled. Super bonus: they have free programs!
  • This is by far my favorite place in NYC to go to to get work done! Huge wooden desk, plenty of outlets, clean and quiet environment, fast-free reliable wifi connection...It has all the essentials for an A+++ spot to study for test prep or work on your laptop. I wish it was open earlier and closed later weekly.
  • Nice multi-function public space with a library full of performance art references and resources, a small auditorium for live performances, art exhibits, and a cafeteria. The Broadway and West End exhibit has lots of interesting trivia and pieces from well-loved shows such as Chorus Line and The Lion King.
  • The Performing Arts Library is one of our city's treasures. Any performing artist should come here and comb through the music, the scripts, and there recordings. There's no end to what you can find and learn.
