And here’s a quote from the book I started reading yesterday:

In typical Beaux-Arts fashion, the facade [of the New York Public Library] manages to appear both grandly monumental and coolly rational, except for a curious row of little doorways high up the wall, which lack balconies or even railings and open into mid-air. The strange little sky-exits, which a friend who works at the library claims are for staff defenestration, provide a fanciful note to the great marble facade.

–Witold Rybczynski, The Look of Architecture
