Hunters Point Library

Hunters Point Library sits along the East River waterfront in Long Island City, wedged between two notable landmarks—the famous Pepsi-Cola sign and the Long Island sign in Gantry Plaza State Park. Designed by Steve Holl Architects, this newest branch of the Queens Library system has an extremely futuristic look and feel; a concrete building with cutouts along its shiny aluminum sides makes it more like a work of art than your run-of-the-mill library. Surrounding the library is park space overlooking the water, and inside readers will find children’s, teen and adult sections, along with a ground-level reading garden and a rooftop one with panoramic views of the City.
