Well, it's not really that little it's about two city blocks long. Stopped by the New York Public Library Fifth and 42nd today and enjoyed spending time in the Rose Main Reading Room, some times I hang out in the reading room and write notes for my novel/projects.
It's peaceful and like a museum inside.
