7. Tompkins Square Park Library, Manhattan

The Tompkins Square Branch library was also built by the architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White in 1904. Located at 331 East 10th Street between Avenues A and B, the building was remodeled in 1960, and made handicapped accessible in 1996 under the “Adopt-a-Library” program. The library historically dates back to 1887, when it opened as the Fifth Street Branch of the Aguilar Free Library. It relocated three times before moving to its current location as a Carnegie library. The building is not landmarked.
