I love how spontaneously you can find a park in the Big Apple. It wasn’t until my third trip to NYC that I really enjoyed this part of the city. Open, green, beautiful, chairs, reading, movies in summer… sorrounded by tall buildings that seem to be protecting this great place. Also the NYC Public Library is there.
Bryant Park is a 9.603 acre (39,000 m²) privately managed public parklocated in the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues and between 40th and 42nd Streets in Midtown Manhattan. Although technically the main building of the New York Public Library is located within the park, effectively it forms the park’s functional eastern boundary, making Sixth Avenue the park’s primary entrance. Although part of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, Bryant Park is managed by a private not-for-profit corporation, the Bryant Park Corporation
