Morgan Library Featured as One of the Most Beautiful Places in America
Tuesday, June 28, 2016
Congratulations to business member, The Morgan Library, featured in Condé Nast Traveler's "The 50 Most Beautiful Places in America," posted in July. This was especially remarkable, as most of the places pictured were sites of great natural beauty.
Pierpont Morgan's 1906 library, shown in the article, is the largest and grandest of the rooms in the McKim building. The walls, reaching to a height of thirty feet, are lined floor to ceiling with triple tiers of bookcases fashioned of bronze and inlaid Circassian walnut. Two hidden staircases, concealed behind bookcases at the corners of the room, provide access to the balconies above.
