Pros and Cons of Library Spaces in New York

No one can deny the value of libraries in our society - they provide access to information, resources, and community events. However, there are pros and cons when constructing new library spaces in densely populated cities like New York.


  • The New York Public Library is one of the world's largest and most comprehensive public library systems, with over 93 locations.

  • Libraries offer various resources and programs for all ages, including books, ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, newspapers, DVDs, music CDs, computer classes, homework help, and more.

  • Libraries are free for everyone, making them a vital resource for low-income and marginalized communities.


  • Due to budget cuts, many libraries across the city have reduced hours or been forced to close entirely.

  • Libraries can be crowded and noisy, making it difficult to focus on studying or reading.

  • Some people may feel intimidated by the rules and regulations of libraries, such as having to be quiet or returning materials on time.

Tips on How to Organize Library Spaces in New York

If you're looking to spruce up your library space in the New York area, hosting a library event can be a great way to bring people in and organize at the same time. Look no further. These tips will help you make the most out of your library space in New York.

  • Choose the event type: It's essential to consider what event or activities will take place in the space. Will there be seating for workshops or presentations? Make sure there is enough room for participants to comfortably sit or stand with enough room for any materials they may need.

  • Think about storage: Are shelves or drawer units available for organizing materials like books, folders, and supplies? Or maybe even designate a specific area for those materials to be easily accessible.

  • Consider pathways and circulation: Make sure there are clear walkways for patrons and not too much clutter scattered throughout.

Famous Locations in New York

  • Life Underground Sculptures
    Tom Otterness is an artist who is no stranger to controversy and shock value. In 1977, as part of a performance art piece, he shot a dog on video. This led to a backlash against him throughout his career, but it cannot be denied that he has gone on to establish himself as a successful public artist. Life Underground is one example of this – through the playful bronze statues may appear light-hearted at first glance, they contain enough detail and wit to make even the most seasoned New Yorker stop and take notice. Subway riders in our city are reminded to pause and appreciate its vibrant history for a brief moment, even as they rush by on their daily commute. This is thanks to the many statues dotted around of infamous mole people living underground, historical figures such as Teddy Roosevelt riding a snail, or P.T. Barnum entertaining busts of Tom Thumb and Scaramouch.

  • Bristol Basin
    The Bristol Basin didn't exist until World War II when the British government needed more land to expand the port in Manhattan. But it quickly became much more than that - it was also a little piece of home for the British troops stationed there. The ships that brought soil from England were also filled with other goods needed by the troops, and having that familiar English soil made them feel more at home. The small, unremarkable Bristol Basin in New York City is a significant part of history. It is a reminder of the close relationship between America and its European ally during times of war.

  • The Former Offices of McKim, Mead, and White
    The New York City offices of McKim, Mead & White remind the grandeur and elegance of America's Gilded Age. This firm was responsible for some of NYC's iconic buildings, including Penn Station, Columbia University, and the Washington Square Arch. They also designed country clubs, hotels, mansions- you name it! If it was luxurious and opulent in the late 19th century, chances are good that McKim had a hand in it. McKim, Mead & White were instrumental in shaping the architectural style of America's Gilded Age. They took classical forms from Rome and Greece and mixed them with elements from Paris's Ecole des Beaux-Arts to create a unique fusion. Every time we walk through the Washington Square Arch or pass by Penn Station, we experience a piece of history thanks to their significant influence on American architecture.
