The building’s distinct shape comes from its triangular footprint.
Its three faces address different parts of the city: the harbor to the southwest, Manhattan’s Midtown to the north, and brownstone Brooklyn to the east.
This library's entrance remains in dialogue with the civic scale of the federal and state courts at Borough Hall.
