Bryant Park

42nd & 6th Ave. New York, NY 10016 | Murray Hill | 212-983-4142

Location Description:

Now a prissy picnic spot, that football-field sized lawn between Fifth and Sixth, south of 42nd used to be a Midtown dealers paradise. Now, bright-light pop artists such as Hillary Duff perform here, garden tours promenade through the grounds and worker-bees in their khakis perch on blankets on the fescue for midday getaways. What a difference a decade (or three) makes. Bryant Park is still home to an abundance of free events, from weekly film screenings in the summertime to indoor reading series in the winter.
