Tips from foursquare
“And if you’re trying to describe a institution like Poets House,/…With a library, an auditorium, exhibition space, and reading rooms,/…Ordinary prose will not do.” –Ian Frazier
The best far-downtown place to read, write, or (duh) find great poetry, the brand-new Poets House is free and open to the public.
Literary journals, chapbooks and a multimedia archive (accessible onsite using Poets House iPods) are among the collections available at the Poets House.
An amazing place to read poetry, write or simply reflect while relaxing in comfy chairs overlooking the Hudson River!
A national poetry library and literary center that invites poets and the public to step into the living tradition of poetry. Don't miss it!
