A true bookish landmark, and in no need for an introduction. The New York Public librabry is the second largest library in the United States (behind the Library of Congress), and the third largest in the world. Immortalized in several films, most notably in the classic film, Breakfast at Tiffany's and the cult favorite, Ghostbusters. The library has branches in Manhattan, the Bronx, and in Staten Island, but it's more notoriously know for it's main branch building, along with its Rose Main Reading Room.
