Library Way

Grand Central Partnership has transformed East 41st Street between Fifth Avenue and Park Avenue into an entertaining and illuminating promenade to the majestic New York Public Library Humanities and Social Sciences Library by displaying bronze sidewalk plaques featuring quotations from literature and poetry. Known as “Library Way," this initiative was being undertaken by GCP with the assistance and support of the New York Public Library, the property owners and commercial tenants along 41st Street, library organizations, and the New York City Department of Transportation. Library Way was officially dedicated on May 27, 2004.
