Sunday Salon: New York, New York!




This summer I went to New York City for the first time.


Guess what was my favorite spot in NYC?

Fortitude or Patience. Fortitude, I think.


You know you are going somewhere special 
before you go inside.


Even the water fountains are beautiful.


Art in the library. What a great place to read!


Beautiful.


So beautiful.


Just beautiful.


And this is just for the even numbers.


I could have stayed here all day.


The children's room was lively.


Just because the library is old doesn't mean
it's out of date with technology.


Beautiful outside spaces, too.


And look what I got in NYC!


Am I the only one who goes to libraries on vacation?!

  2. Haha I went there when I was in NY too! Did you go to The Strand as well? I was in heaven.

  3. I would probably have found a hotel nearby the library and not went anywhere else and then I would have been disappointed in myself when I got home. I always look for the library everywhere I go.

  6. You're definitely not the only person Deb, I do too. In fact one of the few regrets I have from Paris last year (apart from the fact that it was two months too short) is that I didn't go to the National Library which was in fact just a few blocks away, and I walked past quite often on my evening stroll. Next time.

  7. It's strange, Louise, but I failed to visit the library in Paris also.

  11. I loved seeing the library when I went to NYC too! The book delivery number system was so strange compared to a small town library.
