Mancave for a Midas


Despite living in New York for years, I'd never been to the J.P. Morgan Library until a recent visit. Pierpont Morgan's three-story library with its inlaid walnut bookshelves, concealed stairways and ceiling with paintings by H. Siddons Mowbray took my breath away.

    What the public would miss if this wasn't open to all. It's unbelievably beautiful. Having a library like this is a fantastic room. Thanks for making the pictures available. Wish I was closer to New York - I am in Central Texas.

      @Kate Amador The pictures hardly do justice to experiencing it in person. Thanks for stopping by.
