  • 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.

  • I love this library - so many good music books. I have not had the chance to examine the collections for other arts, but I bet there is a lot on offer for them as well. Truly an amazing resource for the people of this city.
  • This library is the best. So many videos, DVDs, and book. I love how the inside looks. Love the cafe and the theater where you can watch a movie. But I don't like it that the homeless people come in and use the bathrooms. They leave the bathroom dirty.
  • This is a peculiar gem in the NYPublic Library system. You've got higher security than most branches, and more stringent rules for food and drink in the reading area. Yet it's the only branch I know of with a Cafe right inside. Also the Performing arts Media resources are all here and I always find a seat and place to setup my laptop when I need it.
  • 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. ;(
  • excellent collection and exhibits, for free. check it out while at Lincoln center.
