132 Duane Street (via Halstead) 132 Duane Street (via Halstead)
Shortly after the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a pandemic, New York sprang into action by restricting public gatherings of 500 people or more - as of this writing, the St. Patrick's Day Parade has been cancelled, Broadway is going dark, and several sports seasons have been suspended.

If ever there was a time to catch up on reading, this was it. The New York Public Library may have suspended its programming and events, but it is still celebrating its anniversary with "125 Books We Love." And as we take a look at Manhattan apartments with built-in shelving made to accommodate a big book collection, we'll be recommending books set in the city as well. From downtown conversions to Upper East Side classics, from literary classics to children's books to romances, there is something for everyone to be found.
