This landmark Beaux Arts building is what most people mean when they say “the New York Public Library.” Two massive stone lions, dubbed Patience and Fortitude by former mayor Fiorello La Guardia, guard the main portal. Free guided tours (at 11am and 2pm) include the beautifully renovated Rose Main Reading Room and the Bill Blass Public Catalog Room, which offers free Internet access. Lectures, author readings and special exhibitions are worth checking out.
