Vacation, All I Ever Wanted

One of the latest Weekend in New York stories, found in the New York Times Travel section, caught my eye today: A Bookworm's Holiday. Author Seth Kugel gives some sight-seeing suggestions, including the current Jack Kerouac exhibit at the NYPL Humanities and Social Science Library [or, as I call it, "the big one with the lions"] and the Morgan Library & Museum, featuring "amazing illuminated manuscripts, a 1240 pocket Bible and even an original print of the Declaration of Independence," not to mention two, count 'em, TWO Gutenberg Bibles!

Personally, I'd like to sit quietly in Pierpont Morgan's
personal library for a little while. Do you think it has wi-fi?
