New York Society Library

Dev Iyer
Origins of this library can be found in the humblest of beginnings in a single room, founded by six people who felt a moral sense of civic duty towards society to start New York's first public library. This Victorian like space is a bibliophile's fantasy. During the revolution, it is said that the British pillaged the place, looted books and robbed it of its possessions before it could be restored. Currently, this luxurious library holds a set of 30,000 volumes.Hours: 9 a.m - 5 p.m (Monday & Friday)9 a.m - 8 p.m (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday)9 a.m - 5 p.m (Saturday & Sunday)Entry fee: Pay as you like
