Jefferson Market Library

The charming Jefferson Market Library has lots of interesting history. For example, Stamford White’s murderer, Harry K. Thaw, was arraigned there.
Follow the links for the details.

The Victorian Gothic style building was designed by architects Frederick Clark Withers and Calvert Vaux (who also helped design Central Park). It was erected (along with an adjacent prison and market) during the years 1875 to 1877.
