Secret New York Library

Tucked away in the subway system, Terence Cardinal Cooke-Cathedral branch of the public library is a semi-secret. Few people who don't take the train know it exists. At first I thought it sounded kind of dim and even dangerous (wouldn't it be kind of deserted at night?) but the library's webpage makes it look more inviting than I envisioned. They are tailored to their patrons, specializing in business books and popular novels... and subway maps for the tourists that stumble across the library.

I love it!

Montreal used to have a branch in the McGill metro station, but it was sadly before my time....!

Jessamyn West had a neat post about secret rooms in libraries, too!
