NYCGO Member  Logo The Library’s landmark Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, with its softly gleaming white marble, sits invitingly amid the jungle of glass, concrete and asphalt that is Manhattan. Often referred to as the "main branch," the Beaux-Arts landmark building on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street houses outstanding research collections in the humanities and social sciences as well as a circulating children’s collection. The Schwarzman Building, with its majestic front steps watched over by the beloved Library Lions, Patience and Fortitude, is a quintessential New York City icon.
