Mid-Manhattan Library

455 5th Ave.
New York, NY 10016
212-340-0833
Across the street from the grand, photogenic Research NYPL, the Mid-Manhattan branch (the largest circulating collection in the city) looks surprisingly sad and exhausted. Like any (bloated) high school library, the carpets are colorless and pee-stained, and the books are stacked on rolling carts. Don't come here looking for romance.
