On this members-only Untapped Cities Insiders visit to the Jefferson Market Library, climb the 149 steps that lead up to the clocktower and take in 360 degree views of Greenwich Village and New York City. Insiders will get a brief overview of the building’s history from the library manager before the climb. Once at the top, guests will spend the rest of the visit taking in the views and exploring the tower freely. The Gothic-style building was originally a courthouse and was converted in 1967 into a branch of the New York Public Library. The building, a New York City landmark, was designed by architects Frederick Clark Withers and Calvert Vaux (who also assisted in the design of Central Park). The New York Public Library Jefferson Market Library branch will be opening up the clocktower just for Untapped Cities Insiders!
