The Ottendorfer Libraray
I have often passed by this building when I have been in the village and did not pay much attention to it. All that I would notice is that it says bibleothek which means library in French. Eventually I took a closer look and read the plaque on the library which states that the Ottendorfer branch of the NYPL is the first New York public library. The architecture is really cool from the outside. When I went inside it did not seem as quaint.
This library is located at 135 Second Avenue between East 9th St and St. Marks Place in Manhattan. It kind of makes me feel like I am in a foreign country when I look at this building because it is so old.
