I don't think I mind the new image too much, but it looks a little off-center to me, sitting so far below "New York Public Library." And speaking of that, they took the "The" from The New York Public Library in this new logo.

I like the new logo. But I think they should get rid of the lion entirely and replace it with a fichus. What says knowledge/power/carbon dioxide/intelligence better than a fichus?
