This is a beautiful Hogwarts-like library, my favorite in the city. Friendly librarians! Ascend a spiral staircase surrounded by stained-glass windows to get to the Adult reading room. The building used to be a courthouse, and is now an NYC landmark. (Unfortunately the building will be closed for renovations on April 1, 2019 but will reopen about 3 months later.)

Only draw back is there is no public restrooms for adults, but some of the nearby restaurants and cafes have been pretty generous to make up for that. PS- I’m told restrooms will be opened after renovations this Spring, 2019!
