where the books live.

one of my most anticipated life moments was realized when i spent an entire morning wandering the new york public library, just me and the books.

while my friends were at tiffany's, i was in awe.

{in case you are wondering: the new york public library is where the original manuscript of the waste land lives. it's where the largest virginia woolf manuscript collection lives. it houses kerouac and dickens and keats and hardy and i could go on and on and on.}


  1. Who needs Tiffany's? You found heaven on earth! Beautiful pictures!

  2. Alexa
    you are ridiculously cute and I would choose the NY public library over Tiffany's any day.

  3. You are a woman after my own heart; I love that library! I'll never forget my first trip there-- magical! I love the marble lions and Bryant Park too. You did an amazing job capturing so many treasures found there!
