Delight in the intricacy and grandeur of The New York Public Library's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building with this sophisticated silk scarf, which pictures architectural drawings created between 1897 and 1911 by the building's architects in preparation for its construction.
Designed by John Merven Carrère and Thomas Hastings, NYPL's Fifth Avenue flagship location is a landmark of Beaux-Arts architecture. Housing outstanding research collections in the humanities and social sciences, it has been the Library's home since its dedication in 1911, standing for more than a century as an emblem of access to knowledge for all. Carry the elegance and majesty of the Library everywhere you go with this dazzling design.
Architectural drawings of the Central Building of the New York Public Library, including the elevations depicted on this scarf, can be viewed online through NYPL's Digital Collections, a living database of items digitized from the Library's vast collections.
