This richly detailed yet accessable entry into turn-of-the-century wealth and privilege in NYC is a wonder. The building houses not only display areas for a changing series of artistic showings, but also the original entryway, library, and study of JP Morgan. As a banker who accumulated great wealth, political power, and out-sized influence, Mr. Morgan could afford to decorate his... More

Slightly off the main tourist trail but well worth a visit. The building is a joy to be in and the library and study are impressive. A must see for anyone who loves books. Some rare books and manuscripts were on display.What a treat. The live music in the cafe area was appreciated.

The Morgan Library is a beautiful, peaceful retreat - perfect for a rainy day! If you love books or libraries this is a must see museum. The tours are wonderful. Miriam lead the tour of the Emily Dickinson exhibit and it was fascinating. She's an excellent guide! I could listen to her recite poetry for hours. The office and library... More

Ornate interiors with impressive display of various artifacts. Live classical music playing in the vast atrium added a nice touch.

If you are a fan of hers, you will gain a more intimate experience of her personal life and how her poems reflect it. There is even a lock of her auburn hair! And when you've seen and heard all you want of Emily Dickinson, wander through the rest of this special museum to see how a man of means... More

Following hard on the heels of their recent exhibits on Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte the Morgan has created a superb collection of the poet Emily Dickinson's life and work. Dickinson was a prolific poet with over 1700 poems written during her lifetime.Unfortunately she lived to see only 10 published. Much has been made of her increasingly reclusive nature but... More

The Morgan Library that is walking distance from Grand Central features excellent exhibits. I particularly like viewing her letters and manuscripts and listening to her poems..

Short visit to NYC but had to include a stop here for this visit! Beautiful museum with an amazing collection! They have rotating exhibits and we were overjoyed to see original manuscripts from Mozart, Debussy and Chopin! I would have loved more time but so happy to have been able to fit it in! Will probably be back!

The Morgan is one of my favorite places to go when in NYC. You have the flavor of an individual's home, albeit not most people's homes in today's world. You also see so much of the history of NYC and our country. The library, itself, is not to be missed. I have great library envy whenever I enter - and... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
