#travelwithgdp Fact: Bryant Park is located entirely over an underground structure that houses the New York Library’s stacks, which were built in the 1980s when the park was closed to the public and excavated; the new library facilities were built below ground level while the park was restored above it.
Description: Bryant Park is one of the signature examples of New York City’s revival in the 1990s. With a low crime rate, the park is filled with office workers on sunny weekdays, city visitors on the weekends, and revelers during the holidays. Daily attendance counts often exceed 800 people per acre, making it the most densely occupied urban park in the world. A New York Times article in 1995 referred to the park as the “Town Square of Midtown” and an “office oasis” frequented by midtown office workers. The park is great due to its relative calmness and cleanness.
