New York Public Library - Manhattan, New York

In all of the times that I have visited New York City, whether working or not, I have walked by the New York Public Library, but never went inside. I know that many photographers have done so and have come away with some great shots. So when Chris Nitz, Rick Louie and I walked past the library on a rainy day, in we went. Once inside, I regretted never doing it before, as it is target rich with some great subjects to shoot. We were all hoping to get the much photographed scene of one of the reading rooms, but it was under construction after part of the ceiling fell to the floor. Too bad, but there were other scenes like this one to shoot. The architecture sort of reminded me of Grand Central Terminal, and you will see more shots from the library in the future.
