New York Public Library, Port Richmond Branch

New York Public Library, Port Richmond Branch

Port Richmond, Staten Island, New York City, New York, United States

Opened on March 18, 1905, the Port Richmond Branch of the New York Public Library is one of four Carnegie branch libraries on Staten Island and one of sixty-seven in New York City, built with Andrew Carnegie's 1901 donation of $5.2 million which established a city-wide branch library system. The distinguished and prolific architectural firm of Carrere & Hastings designed the Port Richmond Branch as well thirteen other Carnegie branch libraries and the Main Building of the New York Public Library. The library, prominently sited on a comer, is Classical Revival in style with a center entrance highlighted by a columned portico above a flight of stairs leading to an interior brightly lit by large arched windows. Port Richmond has been a major village, port, and commercial center on Staten Island since the early nineteenth century. The library has played a prominent part in Port Richmond's social and civic life for nearly one hundred years.

Subsequent History

The Port Richmond Branch has continuously operated as a library since its opening in 1905 and has adapted to serve the changing community. In the early twentieth century, the library was well-known for its collection of Danish and Norwegian books. As the ship building industry grew on Staten Island during World War I, the library responded to requests by assembling one of the largest collections of books on ship building in the New York Public Library system. In 1938-39 a one-and-one-half-story brick rear addition, which reflected the design of the original library, was built with Works Project Administration funds.

A rear first floor reading room, a second floor custodian's apartment, and a basement auditorium were created. Auditoriums or community rooms were original features in many of the Carnegie libraries and they have been used extensively for programming by the libraries over the years. The auditorium in the Port Richmond branch, Chimes Theater, is a small theater with a raised stage. Custodians' apartments were also regular features of the Carnegie branches. There have been several small renovations in the last three decades, including roof recladding in 1967 and window replacement.


The Port Richmond library is located on the corner of Bennett Street and Heberton Avenue, set back on a lawn which is bordered by hedges.^ A wide concrete walk and a flight of concrete steps, with recent metal railings at the sides and in the center, lead to the entrance. The side facade on Heberton Avenue is set back slightly and contains a non-historic concrete access ramp with metal railing leading to the basement of the rear addition.

A tall flight of brick steps with a metal pipe railing leads to the side entrance in the addition. The rear and west side alleys are enclosed by a non-historic chain-link fence and a brick wall.

The library is a freestanding, three-bay masonry structure with a T-shaped plan. The main block is one story over a high basement and the rear addition is one-and-one-half-stories high, although both sections are about the same overall height.

The hipped roofs of the main block and the addition are clad in asphalt shingles. Deep overhanging bracketed wooden eaves wrap around the building on all sides, on both the main block and the addition. All facades are composed of red Flemish bond brick and stucco with Indiana limestone and cast stone trim.

The projecting center entrance section has a full wooden triangular pediment supported by tall stone Tuscan columns. The wooden modillioned cornice has a frieze with raised X's set in squares and an architrave containing the words "NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY." A flag pole is anchored at the center of the frieze. The tall arched entranceway is set in a limestone frame. The wooden doorway enframement has fluted pilasters supporting a flat pediment with a rectangular transom above non-historic double metal doors.

The arched window above the doorway is covered by a metal mesh grate. A recent (1996) metal plaque on the west side of the doorway reads "New York Public Library Port Richmond Branch."

The basement terminates in a curved, molded brick watertable on both the main block and the addition. The basement windows in the main block are rectangular with flat stone lintels and decorative metal grilles overlaid with non-historic mesh grilles.

On either side of the center doorway, the two first-story arched windows are set flush into a stucco frame which is keyed into the brick to form classically-inspired quoining. The spandrel below the projecting stone window sill is also stucco. Each window opening contains two replacement one-over-one aluminum double-hung windows with a fixed arched aluminum transom above. The windows are covered by non-historic metal grills. On the side facades of the main block, two windows are set into a stucco frame like that on the front facade.

There were so many words for "A" I couldn't choose just one. So, there's absolutely amazing, artists, abundance and art. I am dealing with a small hang tag so I had to limit myself since it was, after all, my first one.
This one has rhinestones, silver charms, fiber, feathers (just love feathers for texture) wire, beads, fabric, ball chain, words, rubber stamp images, and ephemera.

"I collect words. I keep them in a box in my mind. I'd like to keep them in a real box, something pretty, maybe a shoe box covered with flowered wrapping paper. Whenever I wanted, I'd open the box and pick up the papers, reading and feeling the words all at once. Then I could hide the box. But the words are safer in my mind. There, he can't take them."
Ten-year old Kaylee Wren doesn't speak. Not since her drug-addled mother walked away, leaving her in a remote cabin nestled in the towering redwoods-in the care of a man who is as dangerous as he is evil. With silence her only refuge, Kaylee collects words she might never speak from the only memento her mother left behind: a dictionary.
Sierra Dawn is thirty-four, an artist, and alone. She has allowed the shame of her past to silence her present hopes and chooses to bury her pain by trying to control her circumstances. But on the twelfth anniversary of her daughter's death, Sierra's control begins to crumble as the God of her childhood woos her back to Himself.
Brought together by Divine design, Kaylee and Sierra will discover together the healing mercy of the Word-Jesus Christ.

Acclaim for Words:

"First-time novelist Yttrup writes a riveting, emotionally charged story . . . page by page, word by word, this talented author proves the adage 'Write what you know.'"

Publishers Weekly

"Ginny takes us on a path from pain and strle to joy and wholeness as her characters discover that the author of Truth is the way to freedom and healing. Sexual abuse may not be your story, but most certainly you will have someone in your life for whom this is a reality. Read it for them. Read it for yourself. And read it for those around the world who’ve yet to be set free."

Barbara Wilson, author of The Invisible Bond

"It's hard to believe this is Ginny L. Yttrup's debut novel. She beautifully and effectively weaves a story of trust, sacrifice, truth, new beginnings, freedom and unconditional love. Here are 334 pages of words that may very well leave you speechless."

"An astounding, debut novel. I haven't read anything this profound, inspiring and life changing since (Francine Rivers') Redeeming Love."

Finding Hope through Fiction

"Yttrup's journey of healing, redemption and faith is gorgeous, uplifting, difficult at times, but oh so beautiful and stunning . . . I loved this book."

Fiction Addict

"From start to finish Words had my heart and mind. I found myself thinking about the book when I needed to be sleeping. Author Ginny L.Yttrup has truly allowed the truth and the Truth to set her free."

Live, Learn, Love

"A captivating story with the message of hope and restoration . . . touch(ing) on a topic that makes me sick and boiling mad. Yttrup writes from the depth of her own life experiences and her stories will resonate with many women and provide hope for their pain."

Five Star Books

"This is the type of story that resonates with you long after you've closed the book . . . A powerful, moving story that readers will quickly connect with."
