From The Owners of Bryant Park

This French classical style urban oasis is much more than a charming back porch for the Public Library's main branch.

Reviews for Bryant Park

Bryant Park
Recommends

Pick from a number of restaurants in the park and dine on the grass in the summer. The nearby food trucks are incredibly convenient too.

The free public WiFi here is among the best in the city -- the servers have been upgraded over the years to handle thousands of users at a time, which comes in handy when you're camping out waiting for the park's famous summertime movies to begin.

This French classical-style urban oasis is much more than a charming back porch for the library. – Overview
Since 1884, the former Reservoir Square has borne the name of 19th-century poet and newspaperman William Cullen Bryant. Though not particularly large, the park is home to major NYC events. Fashion Week transforms the western oval into a tented runway that's become a biannual pilgrimage for all fashionistas; the giant movie screen HBO erects each summer shows classic flicks on Monday nights.

Features

A statue of Bryant dominates the east end from an elevated area affording a lovely view through stone balustrades. Just south of that, a small bronze Gertrude Stein slumps like a Buddha gazing northward with some bewilderment at that travertine and glass gem, the W.R. Grace Building. Other memorials abound: Goethe, William Earl Dodge, Jose Bonifacio and the pink granite Lowell Fountain.

bring a blanket – Plays host to some of the city's most pleasurable rituals--particularly the summer movie series. I'm looking forward to checking out the new carousel.
