Getting to know Boston - Public Library

We are finally getting to know our new city. And I have to say we love it!

This past weekend we spent most of Sunday at the Museum of Fine Arts and at the Boston Public Library. Both are beautiful, but we fell in love with the Library! Apart from the books themselves, there are so many beautiful rooms and details to appreciate.

My favorite room was the The Bates Hall Reading Room. It dates back to 1895 and it is located on the second floor of the McKim Building. It has high arched windows, it is 218 long, 42 feet wide, and 50 feet high, to the crown of its barrel vaulted ceiling. Breathtaking, isn't it?
