This neo-Romanesque building was constructed with funding from the Carnegie Foundation, as well as a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. The building provided a new home for the rapidly growing New York Academy of Medicine, which was founded in 1847. The original building includes nine floors of stacks for the Library, as well as an auditorium and meeting spaces.
