Why We Like This Place

• A $50-million restoration has brought back the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building’s original beauty, making the 1911 landmark a spectacular place for a wedding.

• Seven exquisite event spaces transport you to another place and time. They feature a dazzling variety of features, from the vaulted ceiling and white marble walls in Astor Hall to the glorious 30-foot-high glass and cast-iron dome in the Bartos Forum.

• Your event fees go to a good cause: They help support the Library’s collections, services and programs.
