This was a surprising find. What I liked best was the actual library, with the hidden stair case, and original draft of Dicken's work. Some really wonderful works prior to printing period.

the Morgan library is stunningly beautiful. In addition to the original building, the modern addition features museum galleries with exhibits that change several times a year. The Morgan library holdings are extensive so that only a small selection of the "treasures from the vault" Are on display at any given time. I was blown away too see a Bach score... More

The objects and papers on show gave me chills - fascinating, moving and gorgeous. A real gem of a museum/art gallery. Lovely cafe full of fabulously thin New York ladies of a certain age. Martinis were a surprise!

The Morgan Library is a must, since it was recently renovated and gained a new building inside the old building. This was a creation of Italian architect Renzo Piano. Enjoy the restaurant .

A gem of a museum. The exhibits are well design. The museum is a monument to excellence. Make plans for a fine and well appointed and prepared lunch. Wait staff is exceptional: not intrusive but alert.

Both the Memling and the Luther exhibitions are about to close, and I'm glad we had the chance to see them. The former focused on a jewel of late-medieval Flemish art; the latter on an important historical figure and event. The Morgan is always worth visiting; this time the visit was particularly rewarding.

Our 5th visit to the Morgan Library, and still it entrances. The current Memling exhibition did not disappoint and each viewing of the collection of antique manuscripts provides a 2-3 day filip.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
