I somehow forgot how famous the New York Public Library is. My husband joked that if a girl says, "Oh! This is where Carrie almost got married," she's probably high-maintenance...or something like that.

Of course, that was immediately after I blurted out the same phrase when I saw the inside of the building.

Unfortunately, all my inside photos turned out dark and sad (the above one doesn't even really cut it), so let's focus on the more than beautiful exterior.
I couldn't believe how massive everything was, from the doors, to the light fixtures, the stairs, and all. 
And those details! They were impeccable. 
Don't you want to reach out and run your fingers on the intricacies? Being a goody two shoes, I didn't. I think I'm always afraid someone will yell at me if I try. Or maybe that's because my inner artist self knows it's a no-no to touch originals or ancient things. 
If you're a bookworm, or you just want to know more about the library, here's a little bit of reading. :)
