New York Public Library

Rose Main Reading Room

Main Reading Room

I recently had the opportunity to photograph the historic New York Public Library in New York City. Specifically, images were captured of the exterior and interior of the Beaux-Arts Stephen A. Schwarzman building, which is the main branch located on 5th Avenue and 42nd Street.

The main branch was officially opened in 1911. The building became a National Historic Landmark in 1965. Below are a few of the images captured.

Beautiful wood paneling and murals provide a wonderful surrounding for the brass lamp equipped reading tables in the New York Public Library’s DeWitt Wallace Periodicals Room. Prints of this image (including a black & white version) are available on Fine Art America.

Stacks of books and research materials across from brass lamp equipped reading tables await researchers in the New York Public Library’s Milstein Division of United States History, Local History and Genealogy (Genealogy Room).
