dining-rmIn 1924, the famous financier J. P. Morgan, Jr. gave New York City an extraordinary gift – his father’s library to the public. The palazzo-like structure is located on 36th street and Madison avenue, and its rooms are packed with rare books, old manuscripts, drawings, antique furniture and art. Some of my favorite objects are the drawings by Rembrandt, Michelangelo and Raphael. I felt very privileged to discovered concept drawings for my beloved book The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint Exupery. Also, the Library has a beautiful cafe, with an 18th century feeling, and a Madison avenue crowd, which you should not miss.
