  • Absolutely tranquil, love coming here. Makes me feel like I need to desperately add to this library
  • Perfect place to do thinking work, reading and writing upstairs. Peaceful and airy, lots of natural light. Lots of tables and comfy seating. Overlooks a park and the Hudson River. A Le Pain Quotidian is just around the corner to grab coffee and water to bring with you. Excellent poetry collection and events as well as workshops. Has a great children's library downstairs. Also has a cart at the entrance where you can buy poetry books for good prices.
