After a nearly two-year renovation, the New York Public Library debuted a host of renovated spaces inside the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, in Harlem.

The Center, located on Malcolm X Boulevard, between West 136th and 135th Streets is comprised of three interconnected buildings: The Langston Hughes Building, the Schomburg Building, and the Landmark Building. All three spaces saw renovations as part of the $22.3 million revamp.

In 2015, NYPL brought on Marble Fairbanks Architects to design the renovation, and some of the work they carried out is as follows: a complete renovation of the 112-year-old Landmark Building, which was named a national historic landmark, in January this year. Changes here include a new gallery space, new research space, and new rooms for staff as well.
