Just a short walk from Grand Central and Penn Station, the Morgan is a major exhibition venue for fine art, literature, and music, one of New York's great historic sites, and a wonderful place to dine, shop, and attend a concert or film.

Everything started in a bad way. Credit card declined, small exhibits. Interesting though. Fortunately we ended up in the vault treasure and it was gorgeous. Guttemberg bible. Original music plays. Very old books everywhere in a gorgeous aisle. Nice photos.

The Morgan Library is a must see for those who love and appreciate the written word. The collection is unique and impressive, including its presence of Gutenberg Bibles. If you love history, art & books then do yourself a favor and visit The Morgan!
