Peek Inside the Decorated Jefferson Market Library Tower in Greenwich Village

You may not know the Jefferson Market Library by name, but if you have ever walked through Greenwich Village on 6th Avenue, you would definitely recognize the library by sight.

As part of this past weekend’s Open House New York, the normally off-limits library tower was open to the public, and out friends at Ephemeral New York were able to capture these great photos from inside and atop the decorated tower.

Once a year, the steep winding staircase leading to the top of the Jefferson Market Library’s Gothic clock tower opens to the public. It’s worth the almost hour-long wait in line and slight vertigo to ascend the many steps and reach the top of this singular beauty of a building.
