NYC notes

Three quick New York notes:

  1. Some look for treasure in the city’s bank vaults, museum vitrines, or auction houses. But the Municipal Archives are the city’s true treasure house, according to The New York Times. Definitely a vast resource for writers and researchers!
  2. But the best treasure might be a writer’s workspace that isn’t the local coffee shop. (And their patrons will thank you for leaving them your seat.)
  3. Love the smell of antique books? Libraries? Historic spaces? This project at the Morgan Library aims to recreate the 1906 aroma.

With my upstairs neighbors’ apartment undergoing renovation, I might have to take advantage of that workspace. Or finally join the New York Society Library, as I’ve been meaning to for some time now. Or take a chair in the recently renovated Rose Reading Room

Anyone have a recommendation for noise-cancelling headphones? 🙂
