6th Ave. between 40th St. and 42nd St., New York, NY 10018, United States

One of the city's most famous public spaces, Bryant Park dates back to 1686 and was renamed in 1884 in honor of New York Evening Post editor William Cullen Bryant. Plagued by crime in the 1970’s, the park has re-established itself, largely through the efforts of the Bryant Park Restoration Corporation, as one of the city’s most visited parks. The space is home to the main branch of the New York Public Library, and the lawn is a frequent lunchtime gathering spot for local professionals. Visitors also enjoy the carousel, chess and backgammon, and skating at Citi Pond in the winter.
