The New York Public Library is a system of libraries in New York City.
The system's main building on 5th Avenue was featured briefly when Dr. Teeth and Zoot were looking for an amnesiac Kermit in The Muppets Take Manhattan. The area also served as the preliminary location for the Nylons' version of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" on The Jim Henson Hour, where the Thought Lion stands in for one of the statues of Patience and Fortitude.
