Jefferson Market Library on a Beautiful Spring Day

POST #    1015

Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day and I had some time to kill in the West Village. I walked by the Jefferson Market Library and took some quick pictures of the building. The building itself dates back to the 1870s and is a New York City landmark. It originally served as a courthouse, jail, and a market. In 1967, it was converted into a library after several years of disuse. Incidentally, it was the place I did most of my research during my elementary school and high school days.

I previously visited Jefferson Market last summer during openhousenewyork, when I was able to enter the tower.

i was there really early and there was nobody there. by the time i checked back, there was a line, but we were up there pretty quick. maybe within 10 minutes.
