Our Building

Considered to be one of the most beautiful and welcoming spaces in New York by members and guests, our historic building was built in 1932, designed by acclaimed architect Henry Otis Chapman. Our 8-story “boutique” building features our bookshop on the ground floor, our beautiful second floor reading room and event space, open stacks on our fourth and fifth floors, The Roger Shattuck archive and a new book group and screening room space on the 6th floor, and the Writers' Studio and Writers' Library on our skylit 8th floor.
