**************************

When you’ve lived someplace for a long, long time, it’s embarrassing to admit that you’ve never (or almost never) visited one of your city’s iconic landmarks or tourist spots that everyone else seems to know intimately. For me, one such place has been the New York Public Library" … and after an unplanned visit this afternoon, I’m delighted that I’ll be able to cross it off my "embarrassing admissions" list.

Goodness knows I’ve walked past the imposing 2-block-long front facade of the library often enough (though I have to admit that I had no idea that it occupies the site of the old Croton Reservoir, a 4-acre man-made lake surrounded by massive 50-foot high, 25-foot-wide granite walls, whose 20 million gallons of water supplied New York City residents for most of the 19th century). And as my long-suffering Flickr fans know, I’ve been to the park behind the library (Bryant Park, if you didn’t know) numerous times over the past 40 years, with oodles of photos to document my visits. But as for visiting the inside of the New York Public Library … hmmm … I think I might have wandered inside sometime in the late 1960s or early 1970s to see if they had a copy of one of the early books I had written. But I’m not even sure about that … and after that, I know I haven’t been inside to see the stacks of books, the card catalogs, the ornate paintings, and all of the other details.

Not until today … when I found myself in midtown Manhattan after another of my periodic visits to the dentist. My first instinct was to photograph Bryant Park again, but I was unpleasantly surprised to see that a skating rink and several artsy-craftsy shopping stalls had been installed. Feh. My second instinct was to walk up to Grand Central Station, and see if I could get some better photos with a flash attached to my camera … except that I had forgotten to put the flash into my backpack. Bah. Humbug.

So … I thought perhaps I might find some interesting photo-opportunities at the front of the library, rather than the park behind the library; indeed, it seems there are always tourists posing in front of the library entrance, and various studious, colorful, or oddly-dressed people reading intensely, or sipping a cup of coffee, while they sit on the broad expanse of steps. Now that I was looking at it a little more closely, I had to chuckle at the contrast between "old money" and "new money": the library was opened in 1911 as a result of the contributions of rich, powerful tycoons and robber barons of the late 19th century — people like John Jacob Astor, Andrew Carnegie, Samuel Tilden, etc. — but its main building was recently renovated and refurbished with a massive contribution by one of today’s Wall Street tycoons, Stephen Schwarzman; indeed, it is now known as the "Schwarzman Building."

After I had photographed everything that looked interesting on the outside, I got the urge to go inside … after all, it had been more than 40 years since I last viewed the interior of the building. I’m sure the contrasts were far less visible then; what you’ll see now is a mix of the old (massive columns, Greek statues, long corridors with marble walls and 20-foot ceilings, enormous reading rooms with mahogany walls and old-fashioned lamps) and the new (laptops, desktop computers, iPads, Kindles, microfiche readers, and various blinking and flashing gadgets). But one thing has not changed: it’s still as silent as a tomb; nobody talks above a whisper, and everyone seems to respect the signs that urgently demand visitors to turn off their damn cellphones. Even the familiar startup "bong" of the Apple and Windows computers seemed muffled and muted.

Initially, I was puzzled by the presence of so many laptop computers: if you had a laptop, why would you bother coming to a public library to read stuff? And then I remembered: it wasn’t so long ago that the only "public" place where you could access the Internet was the local public library. There were no wifi hotspots in places like Starbucks (indeed, there was once a time when Starbucks didn’t exist! egad!); you couldn’t get Internet access bundled in with your cable TV subscription (once upon a time, we didn’t even have cable TV! Gadzooks!); and lots of people couldn’t afford the monthly cost of a dial-up modem connection to services like AOL or CompuServe. Lots of people didn’t even have a laptop or desktop PC … so they shlepped down to their public library and waited patiently until one of the old, heavily-used PC’s became available. Or, if they were trying to track down an old newspaper article — in those ancient days before newspapers put all of their archives online — they would trudge down to the library to read things on the big microfiche readers.

And that reminded me why I haven’t been in a public library for such a long time: I’m lucky enough to have my own "personal" access to all of the things that used to be available only from a library. If I spent a lot of time looking at ancient manuscripts, or old historical documents, it might be a different story; but the books that I’ve been reading for the past 10-20 years are available in electronic editions (Kindle, iPad, etc.), or available (free) on the Internet, or available in discounted form from Amazon … or, in the worst case, available in old-fashioned "paper" form in the Barnes & Noble bookstore down the street.

There was another historical aspect of the library that I found amusing: the card catalog. It’s still there, and the cards are still individually typed, with cryptic information about the publication details and current location of the associated book. It reminded me of the vintage-2008 book by David Weinberger (which I ordered from Amazon) called Everything Is Miscellaneous: the power of the new digital disorder", which discussed the original genius, and the current irrelevance, of the Dewey Decimal System — which neatly categorized all books by a single subject in a hierarchical fashion, but which did not contemplate the notion that a book might fall into several categories, at least one of which might simply be "miscellaneous."

The hordes of people in the library were interesting in and of themselves. Lots of minorities, lots of old people. Lots of tourists, most of whom were busily photographing one another on the steps leading up to the entrance. Lots of people bundled up in heavy coats and strange hats, despite the warm temperature inside the building. One guy playing Solitaire/Klondike on his laptop. Another guy sitting in front of a chessboard and neatly-arranged pieces, which he had apparently brought into the building on his own. And aside from the people, there were lots of roped-off corridors, mysterious unmarked (and locked) doors, and long stairways leading up and down to different levels.

There are many more details about the library that I won’t attempt to tell you; if you’re interested in the history of the library, or its relatively unique public-private status, or the various services it provides — many of which are quite valuable even in today’s Internet Age — then check out the Wikipedia page"
