Bryant Park

Bryant is located one block from Times Square, bounded by Fifth Avenue, Sixth Avenue, 40th Street and 42nd Street.  The New York Public Library is situated in Bryant Park.  During lunch hours in warm weather months, the park typically hosts over 5,000 business people, and counts 20,000 visitors to the recently re-designed French formal garden.

On Monday evenings during the summer, HBO presents the Bryant Park Summer Film Festival. Movies are projected onto a large screen and people sit on the lawn to watch. On Friday mornings during the summer, ABC's Good Morning America presents the Summer Concert Series. There is no admission charge for either event. Bryant Park also is host to multiple other programs and ammenities: a caroussel, petanque and knitting lessons, concerts and garden tours.
