A library or a reading room in a residential building makes it more than a building – it is a community of people who still read. This space gives an extra quiet place where residents can get away and unwind with their favorite books. That is a big deal in New York. Below are some of the NYC luxury properties that offer amenities geared toward book lovers with designated reading rooms and curated libraries.
