New York City
Oasis of Bryant Park

Welcome to NYC's Bryant Park to see in a “slow motion” unexpected enclaves of life in the middle of the busy midtown…..

Bryant Park

    I do not know how often after hours of wandering along the NYC streets did you feel like your legs are loaded with lead?

And your only dream is to sit somewhere where the omnipresent steel-and-concrete can fade-out being replaced by the calming effect of the Mother Nature, but your conscious tells you that the Central Park is just too far....

Well, that is why the Bryant Park was created exactly in the center of the city’s bustling area between 40th and 42nd streets.

Here you can take the horizontal position either on the lawn or even better - on one of the sofa-style benches.

And believe me – it laying down on the sofa, sipping the tea or coffee, savoring the bites of tiramisu and at the same time watching the clouds moving on the sky gives a totally new “dimension” to the otherwise simple “coffee time”.

Bryant Park - few historical facts.

    Can you see yourself indulging in the aroma of the freshly brewed coffee in front of you or taking on the tasty meal from one of many nearby restaurants and bars? And the best of it – the vibrant NYC Midtown with its sky-scrappers and busy streets ruled by yellow-cab drivers seems to disappear behind the trees.

If you did not know it yet, then I hope that these NYC free city pictures and photos from the Bryant Park can give you an idea of what you have been missing….

Shortly few historical facts – the first park known as the Reservoir Square opened at this site in 1847. In 1884 it was renamed Bryant Park to honor William Cullen Bryant – the editor of the New York Evening Post and abolitionist.

Soon after, construction of the NYC Library building began and the park benefited from it by addition of terraces, public facilities and kiosks.

     By 1970s, the park became a kind of “no-go-zone”, being taken over by drug dealers, homeless and prostitutes gaining the nick-name “Needle Park”.

In 1980s thanks to the coordinated effort of city authorities and the Bryant Park Restoration Corporation the park recovered from its shady past. For the good of all of us it regained its well deserved glory and the reputation of a place to be for New Yorkers and visitors. 

I hope that after seeing these Bryant Park pictures you will not wait long to stop there for a second look and a new experience :-).
