Uncle Ben drops Peter off in front of the library, reminding him that he’ll be back at 10pm to pick him up. Of course, Peter is using this as a ruse to visit the wrestling stadium and win some money.
It seems very nice of Peter’s Uncle to drive him from Queen’s all the way into the city to visit the New York Public Library on Fifth Ave. But maybe it’s the best place to get his research done.
