If you want some beauty and culture, check out this Library and study for free on Sundays from 4-6pm. Plan to stay about an hour. You have access to 4 rooms that will maintain even teenagers’ attention. The artwork on the walls and ceilings are...More

I live around the corner from the Morgan and so I'm there quite often, yet I never get tired of it. It is the former residence (mansion) of robber baron/obsessive collector JP Morgan and even if it didn't contain remarkable works of art, it would...More

The Morgan Library housed in J.P. Morgan's mansion, and what a remarkable place it is. There's a naturally lit atrium, where there's a lovely dining area, but the real places are the library itself and the museum, which regularly changes exhibits. The library features a...More

You need about an hour. The library is something straight out of mid-evil Europe in the most grandiose sense. The Gutenberg bible is there as are many other first editions. The three story high library has hidden staircases behind the books. When we were there...More

Interesting for library and history buffs but not really for everyone. Some exhibitions are interesting; check before you visit. The library itself is interesting and beautifully done (welcome to the lifestyles of the 1% - circa early 20th century.) Books are all behind glass, not...More
