A sectional view of the New York Public Library. (1911) 


We love this image, showing how the three public floors of the library are supported by the seven stories of stacks within.
Well… originally.
What most people don’t know is that our stacks now extend all the way underneath Bryant Park.
We don’t give tours of the stacks that often, but if you want to see more, you can check out this fantastic online tour (by way of blog post) by Kathie Coblentz, Rare Materials Cataloger for the library showing the inside look and the history of the stacks that make up the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.


More than 172 miles of stacks? Whoa.
