One of our LGBT Historic House Nerds has offered us a rare opportunity to see up close some of the best of the NYPL Print Collection. He knows we are all crazy about historic house architecture, decorative arts, NYC History, maps, gay & lesbian culture and he has been pulling out the stops for our next meet-up. Once we arrive at the amazing Main branch of the NYPL we will travel back into the upper floors to a specially set-up room which will hold the actual collection items to view. David (our LGBT nerd host) will walk us through all of the items and explain what we are looking at.

If we are good little historic house nerds David may just take us to some of the more remote areas of the Main Branch of the Library. If we beg David he may take us down into the famed "book stacks" - so much a part of the news today because they would be removed to make way for the renovation of the NYPL Main Branch Library Building.
Following the NYPL event we will all walk over to a fantastic pizza place and share stories about our worst and best holiday presents!
