The New York Public Library (NYPL) is a public library system in New York City. With nearly 53 million items, the New York Public Library is the second largest public library in the United States (and third largest in the world), behind only the Library of Congress. It is an independently managed, nonprofit corporation operating with both private and public financing. The library has branches in the boroughs of Manhattan, The Bronx and Staten Island and it has affiliations with academic and professional libraries in the metropolitan area of New York State. The City of New York's other two boroughs, Brooklyn and Queens, are served by the Brooklyn Public Library and the Queens Borough Public Library, respectively. The branch libraries are open to the general public and consist of research libraries and circulating libraries.

Of course I remember you taking these library photos. It's great to see one now. :-) I like your focus on the man in front, with a blurred view of all the other people in the main reading room. I also like the bookcases that you included in the balcony level.
FYI, you accidentally listed the state as Nebraska. I don't know if you realized... :-)
