6 New York Public Library

New York Public Library

New York Public Library
The New York Public Library here was opened in 1911 with one million books and 50,000 people queuing up to enter the opening of the library. And the library actually has been quite the hotspot of intellectual and creative activity in the city, and not just literature and philosophy because some of the world's greatest inventions were researched here as well like the photocopier, the polaroid camera, and even the atomic bomb. Today, the New York Public Library here has 87 locations and over 20 million books and it's second in size only to the US Library of Congress and the British library. But the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens have their own separate public library systems because they were formed before Brooklyn and Queens were integrated into New York City. So if one day those library systems would merge, the New York Public Library here would indeed be the world's largest.
