“Free entry. From NYPL website: "George Bruce was an enterprising Scotsman who sailed to the United States before he was 15. Eventually settling in New York, he became a well-known typefounder and inventor of printing machinery. In 1877, Bruce's daughter, Catherine, contributed $50,000 for a library building and books in memory of her father. Completed in 1888, the original George Bruce Library was located on 42nd Street. When the building was sold in 1915, the proceeds were used to build the present-day, handsome, brick and sandstone, Carrere and Hastings-designed building on 125th Street, opened on June 2, 1915."”
