The New York Public Library and ’wichcraft, two New York City institutions, have partnered to bring to the public for the first time in the Library’s history the opportunity to enjoy a sandwich and a cup of coffee within the beautiful marble halls of the Library’s landmark Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. Beginning on March 1, ‘wichcraft will operate two mobile carts serving its hand-crafted sandwiches, coffee, snacks, and other refreshments in two locations, Astor Hall and in the central corridor on the second-floor of the Schwarzman Building. The one-year pilot partnership was forged after a 2010 survey of more than 2,000 NYPL users showed refreshments are a priority for many of them, from scholars and researchers using the building all day to tourists. Feedback will be solicited from NYPL patrons throughout the pilot.
