An Open Reading Room

The New York Public Library’s prestigious main building is located on Fifth Avenue. Two lions guard majestically the main entrance. Nevertheless also those powerful animals are sometimes teased by a pigeon sitting on their heads..




Over the summer a little library offers various books and newspapers to enjoy for free in the “backyard” of the NYPL, Bryant Park. And imagine, this space exists since 1935! It opened as a reaction to the Great depression to give jobless people an  opportunity to meet, read and discuss over the summer.



While covered under the park’s trees (and the even bigger skyscrapers), you can also watch some Midtown business women and men trying to find their inner peace.

Yoga at Bryant Park

If you’re around Bryant Park, try to join the readers and yogis! It’s so much fun!

PS: You’re also just around the corner of the bookstore Kinokuniya.
