New York’s Libraries Secret Apartments

Image thanks to wikipedia

An article by Sarak Laskow shows the inside of 13 secret apartments in New York Libraries. These apartments were intended for custodians to live in when the Carnegie libraries were built. These libraries were heated by coal so a worker had to live in the library to maintain the heat source, hence the apartments. But they have since fallen into disrepair and some had been remodeled into usable library space.
