  • For Sale: The New York Public Library By Bryan Gamble | September 23, 2013

Schwarzman Building adjacent to Bryant Park, more commonly known as the main branch of the New York Public Library, is currently on sale in order to pay for a series of renovations costing $300 million under a series of changes it has been enacting for several years.

The transit authority announced on July 1st that Aecom, a Los Angeles based construction firm, will devise a renovation plan that will hopefully improve Manhattan apartment owner and commuters’ overall experience. Once the firm evaluates the station, deciding which essentials to focus on, responsibly will be divided between the Long Island Railroad, New Jersey Transit, and Amtrak. The entitled plan, Penn Station Vision, will not be paid for by Moynihan Station as previously believed, and instead will be funded by the MTA’s next five-year capital plan, taking effect in 2015.
