A short walk from Grand Central and Penn Station, The Morgan Library & Museum began as the private library of financier Pierpont Morgan. Today, the Morgan serves as a museum, architectural landmark, music venue, historic site, and research library. Home to Rembrandt and Picasso, Dickens and Hemingway, Gutenberg Bibles, and Babar the elephant, the Morgan is, in the words of The New York Times, "extra special, in a class of its own."
