New York Public Library Delays Release of New Design

“The New York Public Library on Wednesday said that it is delaying the release of a new design for the controversial renovation of its landmark Fifth Avenue building. The Wall Street Journal in August reported that the library, in response to outcry over its plans to demolish century-old book stacks, was developing a new design that would preserve a significant portion of them. The library’s president and chief executive, Anthony Marx, said then that the new design would be revealed this fall. The library now plans to release them “sometime after the New Year,” according to a statement posted to its website Wednesday.” (via WSJ)
