The New York Public Library (NYPL) is one of the most important libraries in the world and one of the libraries in the entire American continent with the largest amount of books. The library was built in 1903. It’s known for having a large amount of books for public use along with other obligatory readings on the premises. It’s also one of the largest libraries in the United States with one of the most extensive information search systems. It is directed by a private company even though it is public and not private and is financed with public as well as private funding.
In the classic 1984 Ghostbusters, many parts of the Big Apple were shown, among them the New York Public Library. But the film that had the library on screen the most amount of time was The Day After Tomorrow, where the protagonists sought shelter from the catastrophic climate change within its walls.
