The Beaux-Arts-style architecture of Stephen A. Schwarzman Building along with the front gate's famous marble lions named “Patience” and “Fortitude” attracts thousands of visitors each month.

With four main research-oriented branches and 88 subsidiary branches all over the city, the New York public library has one of the largest book volumes all over the world. The enormous Rose reading room topping 3 floors in Stephen A. Schwarzman Building with paintings of clouds and skyscrapers high up on the 16-meter high ceilings has a quick delivery system to get any of the 4.7 million reference materials of the library as quickly as possible to the reader’s hand. This library has played an important role in American history by helping allied intelligence in World war 2. At the time of its completion in 1911, this library was the largest marble structure ever created in the US.
