Below Bryant Park, a Bunker and a Train Line, Just for Books

“This time of year, Bryant Park is flooded with holiday shoppers strolling amid the vending booths and skaters gliding on the ice rink.Few, if any, might have any inkling that just below them lies a world-class repository of research materials in a concrete-encased, climate-controlled book vault. And a little red railroad.The recently opened book bunker with 55,600 square feet of space extends west from the main branch of the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue. That little red railroad winds from this underground bunker up through the cavernous building” (via The New York Times)
