Check out this new library

by

 A new library in Long Island City, Queens New York recently opened after 10 years of planning and construction.  Overlooking the East River south of the Pepsi sign, the Hunter’s Point Community Library is modern and “whimsical” with spectacular views.

Along the East River, the library looks toward the United Nations. Behind it, the growing apartment towers in Hunters Point.

After waiting 10 years, the library will serve as a community hub of pride and likely attract visitors both local and abroad.

Rooftop bleachers offer sweeping views of Manhattan and a place to stage events.Read this article recently published in The New York Times for more information on the history of its beginnings and why it almost didn’t get built at all.
