I’ve shot this beautiful building many times over the years. Someone just wrote in to inform me that it’s the Jefferson Market library on 6th btw 9th and 10th Streets….For the really great and (less than it used to be) out of control Village Halloween Parade they often create a giant shadow/puppet of a huge spider crawling around its spire…

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. It's the Jefferson Market library on 6th btw 9th and 10th Streets. Much as I wish I grew up in one of the homes in SHELTER, i grew up 2 blocks away from it!
