Lunchtime #drawing: Inside away from the cold with stunning stained glass windows in the Jefferson Market Library, originally a courthouse designed in a Victorian Gothic Style by Frederick Clark Withers and Calvert Vaux, built 1875-77. In the late 1950s it became unused, and Greenwich Village community members fought off a planned demolition. It reopened in 1967 as a branch of the New York Public Library (with the clock in the tower working again).
