The NYPL Respects Schwarzman’s Stature

I’m working today out of what I sometimes call my "midtown office" – the magnificent reading room on the top floor of the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. Which will soon be called the Stephen A Schwarzman Building. I particularly like the detail of where they’re going to put the name of this famously short man:

"We hope to incise the name of the building in stone in a subtle, discreet way on either side of the main entrance about three feet off the ground," said Paul LeClerc, president of the library’s board of trustees. "It’s in keeping with the dignity of the building."
