New York Public Library Main Branch – Photos / Gallery

Located on Fifth Avenue between 40th and 42nd Streets would be the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, home to what’s considered to be the main branch of the NY Public Library. With Bryant Park at its backside this centrally located Beaux-Arts landmark building and New York City icon is freely open to one and all for the sake of taking in and perusing its wonderful interior. Yours truly had the pleasure of revisiting this site recently and what a thrill it was for the photographer in me. Some of us shutterbugs get quite the thrill out of photographing great historical architectural works and this is by no means an exception.
Historically speaking the building was built at where once stood the Murray Hill Reservoir, otherwise known as the Croton Distributing Reservoir, so named because of the water flowing to it from the Croton Aqueduct located in Northern Westchester County, miles north of the city of New York. This above ground structure was torn down in the 1890s thus making way for the Schwarzman Building which stands there now.
The full address would be: 476 Fifth Avenue (42nd St and Fifth Ave) and you could learn more about this building at the official NY Public Library page at their website here…
You may also wish to view an old page on this site put up years ago regarding the NY Public Library.
