Day 173..#New York Public Library..

Last summer..I had the wonderful joy of going to a friend’s wedding (that I blogged about here) in Virginia Beach, VA! It was wonderful..everything gloriously amazing!

Following my stay in VA, I went onto Secaucus, New Jersey, then onto New York City. It was my first time in all three places and I found the overall trip remarkable! It wasn’t as busy as people had described in NYC, which I was kind of glad about and I looked forward to exploring.

I walked around for a few days..trying to get my bearings then I stumbled across the New York Public Library.

I like reading. Lol. So I went in.

The library was HUGE! And it looked eerily familiar..but I’d never been to I couldn’t put my finger on it..

Here are some photo’s..

The New York Public Library – Stephen A. Schwarzman Building

Silent Working..

Biblical Painting..

Corridor with viewing rooms for historical pieces..

The Foyer..

Another Shot of the Foyer/Exit

Partial outdoor view..

I remember after I’d taken all the photographs that this is also where they shot some of the scenes from Sex and the City The Movie..which is why it seemed so familiar! ha ha!

Anyway..if you’re ever in New York City, you should really go and’s a beautiful building!

Please forgive me if the images aren’t 100%..I hadn’t charged my camera, so I took these on my phone 🙂
