Next to the Library, broken fountains, cracked pavement, and swathes of dirt were all that reminded wanderers, were they brave enough to enter, that the area had once been a park. The condition of the area was a blight both on midtown Manhattan, generally a posh environment, and the Library, one of the City's foremost cultural facilities.
