Herald Square is named after the defunct New York Herald newspaper and it remains steadfast in opposition to rival Horace Greeley who owned the rival New York Tribune (he has his own square just south of here). At the northern end of Herald Square you will find the clock on the statue dedicated to James Gordon, owner of the paper. It was once in front of the eponymous building that stood here, but now it is a tranquil slice in the center of one of NYC's most visited retail hubs. Nowadays, visitors are mainly interested in shopping at Macy's, Toys R Us, and the Manhattan Mall. Nevertheless it is always a popular place to be (especially during Thanksgiving), and if you happen to find yourself here at night, look up at the owl's eyes on the statue, they flash an eerie green every few seconds!

The building housing the Pierpont Morgan Library Museum and research facility was constructed by J.P. Morgan Sr., who was one of the richest men in the country. It opened to the public in 1924, and much later the adjacent private home of J. Pierpont Morgan Jr. was absorbed by the museum. A national landmark, the exhibition room showcases rare manuscripts and books - a grand variety of works by musicians, writers, artists and more, including Bach, Hemingway and Rembrandt. The extent of the collection could overwhelm, except that Morgan only shows off the right amount of wares from the permanent collection, enticing one to come back for more. Visiting the study where J.P. Morgan spent much of his time is a must, along with the expansive library across the grandiose marble hall. Differing programs are offered year round, plus there’s a small cafe, garden court, dining room and extensive gift shop.
Built in 1924 for the American Radiator Company, this building was the first major design in New York by Rockefeller Center architect, Raymond Hood. Its stepped-back pyramidal roof was one of the first of its kind, and the stark black brickwork helps it stand out as a familiar landmark of the New York skyline. At 21 stories, the tower is topped by gold terra-cotta trim. When originally lit in honor of the heating company, the stories were supposed to resemble fired coals.
New Yorkers love this small, sculptured park, in the heart of Midtown. With its French benches, colorful flower gardens, green lawn and numerous cultural events, Bryant Park is a peaceful place to take a moment to watch the world go by. Named after poet William Cullen Bryant, the site of this historic park has played an important role in New York City. George Washington's troops walked through the park during the American Civil War. In 1853, the famous Crystal Palace was built here for the World's fair, but later burned. Once the reservoir was built (it was where the Library is today), the land was used as a public space. After being officially designated a public park, the site's fortunes rose and fell with the times. A brilliant restoration in the 1990s transformed the space into the beautiful midtown oasis it is today. For an event schedule and tour information, check the website.
Sitting in all its splendor on Fifth Avenue, the New York Public Library stands guarded by its two famous lions, Patience and Fortitude. For researchers, the library is a treasure. Its many halls contain millions of volumes, tens of thousands of current periodicals and a large staff to help. Conceived in 1897, the library did not open its doors until 1911. It is architecturally one of New York's classics, both inside and out. There are also free art exhibits occasionally on display.
