Check Him Out! Anthony Marx, NYPL President, Caught Drunk Driving


Anthony Marx just started his new job at the New York Public Library in July, but he has already gotten himself into trouble by drunkenly careening around Harlem on a Sunday afternoon in his 2009 Audi. The best way for a public official to spend Marathon Day!

The New York Post reports that the Audi is registered to the NYPL and that Mr. Marx’s blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit. Mr. Marx came to New York from Amherst College, where he was applauded as a fundraiser. Earlier this year, Mr. Marx granted amnesty to children for their overdue library fines. But will the children forgive Mr. Marx?
