The pair of marble lions have stood in front of the library since the the building was dedicared in May 23, 1911.
Edward Clark Potter obtained the commission for the lions,he was paid $8,000.00 for the modelling,the Piccirilli brothers did the carving in pink Tennessee marble they were paid $5,000.00.
During the 1930's Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia named them Patience and Fortitude,for the qualities he felt New Yorkers would need to survive the economic depression.These names have stood the test of time.
Patience still guards the south side and Fortitude the north.
The libraary has adopted them as its logo.
