Bryant Park

Location: 40th-42nd Sts. & 5th-6th Ave., New York Because of the park’s geographic location in midtown Manhattan–one block from Times Square–it is a destination for a wide range of people. During lunch hours in warm weather months, the park typically hosts over 5,000 business people, and counts 20,000 visitors by the end of the day. Among the amenities available to visitors are a French-style carousel, a boule board, chess tables, over 25,000 varieties of flowers, the Bryant Park Grill, and free wireless access, as well as 2,000 moveable chairs for pausing to take in the sights. Bryant Park offers refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city, and provides multiple venues for year-round events and gatherings.
