  • Jefferson Market Library, first Courthouse (or after?), is in Victorian Gothic style and had many features, such as the tower to spot fires. Today it houses a part of the NY Library, but the interiors are not as interesting as you would expect. You can still get in for free and climb the tower. I really like it, but it is not a must-have, but I recommend an itinerary that you can also walk from here.

  • 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.)
  • Really good place to work, read and write. I also recommend checking out the art shows in the basement. 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!
