Photographer's Note

Here the entrance hall of the NYC Public Library, it is named "Astor Hall". This was the last photo inside there before we leave. I live this big archs and the light abd the people walking there.

First opened in 1911, the New York Public Library was created by bringing together a $2.4 million donation from Samuel J. Tilden with the existing Astor and Lenox Libraries in New York City. The site of the Croton Reservoir was chosen for the new library, and its landmark design was conceived by Dr. John Shaw Billings, director of the New York Public Library. When the building opened, it was the largest marble building in the United States. And here we could see the many white marble columns and walls.
