Y is for the New York Public Library

letter yToday we’re visiting one of the most iconic libraries in the world. The New York Public Library in New York, New York is truly magnificent. And I’m sure many of us are familiar with the pair of lion statues that guard the library’s entrance. The lions are called Patience and Fortitude and they’ve been on guard ever since the library opened its doors in 1911.

The New York Public Library is also known as the Main Branch and is considered a historic landmark in Midtown Manhattan. Many of the photos below are of the library’s famous Rose Main Reading Room, which houses grand chandeliers, brass lamps, and gorgeous bookshelves lining the walls.

Like with yesterday’s post for the letter X, I had to get creative again for today’s featured library. There’s a Y in New York, so let’s just say that counts. 😉

I’ll see you tomorrow for the letter Z as the A to Z Challenge comes to an end.
