  • Jefferson Market Library, first Courthouse (or after?), is in Victorian Gothic style and had many features, such as the tower to spot fires. Today it houses a part of the NY Library, but the interiors are not as interesting as you would expect. You can still get in for free and climb the tower. I really like it, but it is not a must-have, but I recommend an itinerary that you can also walk from here.

  • Love this place - historic building, great staff and best of all those fantastic daily handwritten quotes: everyone from Sigmund Freud to Zora Neale Hurston to Marcel Proust. Totally inspiring. Thank you!
  • Not a cozy library. Poor amount of books; couldn't find any of my favorite authors. Librarian downstairs, Friday, August 9th, said, when ordered a book were 9 people ahead of me. However, continued to say "there are 100 copies of the single book!!!" Also snobby, choosing which visitors to be nice to and who not, Stay Away!! No Rest Room!
