Name The Underground New York Public Library
First post December 2011
The Underground New York Public Library is a visual library featuring the plentiful and diverse reading-riders of New York City’s subways. Beneath the streets, photographer Ourit Ben-Haim takes candid shots of commuters with their books and posts them with the book titles and other commentary. Weekly features include a Sunday bible-reader, a Friday e-book reader, and mystery titles that are solved by the Tumblr community.
