New York Public Library (NYPL)

New York Public Library is currently the tenth largest library in the world. The branch has almost 11 million books in collections. This library is huge and it is located quite near to New York Times Square. They have two separate main hall. One of the hall is open to the public where non-flash photography is allowed. While another hall is for students to prepare for exam and research is not allowed to take pictures. The section for exam & research is fully silent. Even taking picture in the public hall is also a challenge for DSLR as the camera produces clicking noise which taking pictures.

The internal library is an art itself. The structure is so beautiful and this attracts millions of visitors to this library every year and it frequently appears in many films.
