project details

The Hunts Point Branch of The New York Public Library features spacious windows and large arches of warm red brick. It was completed on July 1, 1929 as the last of the 39 branches built with Andrew Carnegie’s gift. The library is modernizing and updating, while preserving details of the iconic Carnegie building. Significant improvements to be made include updates to accommodate code compliance; an upgrade for the elevator; upgrades to HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems; restrooms; new stairs and wood flooring and more efficient staff space. The 13,500-square-foot Hunts Point Library is also slated to receive a new garden area and improvements to its entrance vestibule. The Library will also take advantage of its third-floor custodial apartment to provide a usable area that will improve space efficiency throughout the branch.
