10 1/2

This beautiful doorway can be found at the Boston Athenaeum 10 1/2 Beacon Street, about a block from the State House. The Athenaeum, one of the oldest libraries (1807) in the country overlooks the Granary Burying Ground, which must guarantee it to have one of the quietest reading rooms in the city:)

Wonderful doorway! Makes me think the interior is even more spectacular. Have you been inside? Is it open to the public?

Annulla,

No, I have not been inside yet. The reading room is open to the public, but you have to become a subscriber to use all the services of the library.
