37th & Madison [SE Corner] (May 27, 2012)

This building is part of The Morgan Library & Museum near Murray Hill. The museum was founded in 1906 to house the private library of J. P. Morgan, which includes an impressive collection of manuscripts, drawings, and books, many of them in rare bindings. Fans of museum say things like: "I want to build a nest in the middle of the library and never leave," "comparable to a mini Sistine chapel," "a book-lover's paradise," and "three Gutenberg bibles--enough said!" Free admission on Fridays from 7 to 9 p.m.                         CLICK TO ENLARGE
