Serving the New York area for over a century, the New York Public Library has been an essential provider to many neighborhoods and visitors for quite a while. It’s a place that holds history, heritage, and an exceptional abundance of resources available to anyone who may come into contact with the place—which makes it a pretty dope library to stumble across. Channel into your creative psyche and sign up for the offered poetry workshops, or check out exhibitions from notable photographers like Donald Andrew. This experience is sure to leave you up on game to more information you may have been blinded by before entering.—Cedric Hall
