Proposed alterations to the New York Public Library’s facade

New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Committee will hold a hearing on the New York Public Library’s proposal to change its facade on Tuesday, January 22, at 2pm, in its conference room on the ninth floor of 1 Centre Street. In advance of the hearing, details of the library’s proposal, as prepared by Foster + Partners, were on display today at the Landmarks Preservation Committee’s office, and I took photos, which I’ve uploaded here. Please note that these plans don’t reflect any of the changes that have been proposed for the interior of the building, because only the facade has landmark protection.

  1. I don't know the reason, but the NYPL has been allowed to do what it pleases to the 43nd Street library. The City Council is not doing its job. Why no public hearing? It's taxpayer money that pays for the NYPL operations. Same goes for the NYPL's sale of libraries, like the Donnell.
