Best place to watch speed chess (2008)

BRYANT PARK

No need to watch Samuel L. Jackson's chess stratagems as street metaphors on fast-forward in Fresh when you can mill about BRYANT PARK at lunchtime and watch the dedicated unfurl checkered mats at the table for a speedy match before their 1:00 teleconference. The best part is seeing how evenly matched the suit-and-tie set is with players who slept in this park the night before.
