New York Public Library, Nov 2012 - 09 - Explored!

One of the reading rooms on the main floor of the library. Utterly silent, and with a look/feel/smell that instantly transports you back a century.

 

The windows here are on the south side of the building, looking at other office buildings on the south side of 40th Street.

 

The discreet notice at the edge of the table says "Please Watch Your Wallets, Purses, Laptop Computers, and Other Personal Belongings."

 

Note: I chose this as my "photo of the day" for Dec 14, 2012.

 

Note: this photo was published in an Dec 14, 2012 issue of Everyblock NYC zipcodes blog titled "10018." It was also published in a May 20, 2013 NetShot blog titled "Cool New Theme Images."

 

Note: this photo was selected by Flickr's "Explore" mechanism (I have no idea why) and showed up as #243 on their list for Dec 14, 2012. By Dec 17, it had moved up to position #95.
