About the Library

Interior view of Muhlenberg

Opened in 1906, the Muhlenberg Library is one of the 65 branches built from funds given to New York City by Andrew Carnegie. Designed by esteemed architects Carrere and Hastings, the library has served the Chelsea area for nearly a century. The branch—an elegant three-story, brick and limestone structure—is named for William Augustus Muhlenberg, the first rector of Chelsea's Church of the Holy Communion.
