Library Way: Always a Surprise

While taking a break from my research at the Wertheim Study at the New York Public Library on a recent chilly Saturday afternoon, I strolled along Library Way, a public art collection celebrating world literature.

Library Way sits on 41st Street between 5th and Park Avenues. Quotes from canonical writers and poets are engraved in George LeFevre sculpture pieces installed in the sidewalk.

If you needed a reason to crack open a good book.

During your next visit to the New York Public Library, take a stroll along Library Way. You’ll find yourself evermore certain of the power of words and literature.
