Hg2 : The Hedonist

NYC Public Library

Nearly a century old (it opened in 1911), this grand library – guarded out front by the iconic lion sculptures Patience and Fortitude – is home to an unprecedented collection of important works and hosts exceptional art and history exhibits. Enormous and elegant, it’s a veritable temple for bookworms, with frequent reading seminars and daily tours.
