Night View, at the New York Public Library

NYPL in the rain
Photo by myself at Fifth Avenue and Fifth Avenue.

It's been rainy here and a little chilly.

Just outside the main branch of the New York Public Library, the pavement is wet. Banners on the facade announce the current exhibit, celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Main Library.

The facade of this gorgeous building was cleaned to coincide with its anniversary. In the daytime, the building is nearly a bright white. The lighting at night casts a warm glow.

le lion de la bibliothèque est majestueux sur cette photo de nuit.

Wow! It is gorgeous! When we visited the NY Public Library last year it was all covered and we did not have the opportunity to see its facade! Thank you for the picture!

Absolutely beautiful, Kitty! I love libraries in general, and this one's a great one.
