The Schomburg Center at the corner of 135th Street on Lenox now has plywood around the south end and a redesign of the public library space is currently on its way.  Built in 1980, the design of the current space definitely does not hold up to the test of time like most modern architecture from the latter half of the 20th century but the new addition will now provide some corner curb appeal.  More glass will make an inviting intersection for those getting out of the 135th Street stop and will invite more light into a formerly static corner of the original design.  This also worked over at Lincoln Center a few years back when a glassy addition updated the iconic address and it is nice to see some of these aging modern structures updated to be more pedestrian friendly.  More on the Schomburg can be found on the official library website: LINK
