Description

“The Hunts Point Branch of the New York Public Library is the thirty-seventh and final Carnegie branch library to be built in New York City and the ninth to be constructed in the Bronx. It has been in continuous operation as a branch library for over eighty years.”

The library was built in 1929. From 1935-38, the library was expanded by the WPA, “with the construction of a rear two-story addition that accommodated a new activity space and supplementary reading room.”   (https://hdc.org)
