  • 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.

  • We decided to have a free tour of the library after coming in to look inside. It is beautiful and well worth a visit. The free tour is also worth doing if you have an hour to spare. Weekdays there is ...  more »

  • 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.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
