Located on Long Island City’s waterfront, the Hunters Point Library finally opened to the public this week.
After nearly a decade in the making, Hunters Point Library officially opened on Tuesday, September 24. Designed by Steven Holl Architects, the futuristic waterfront structure offers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline from various vantage points throughout the library.
However, the 22,000-square-foot space not only offers gorgeous views, but also features amenities like a rooftop reading garden, meeting room, children’s room, an education center, free wifi, and 52,000 books.
The $41.5 million library welcomed 1,355 people on its opening day, and for many it seems that the wait—and price tag—were worth it.
