Bryant Park

A visit to Bryant Park is a must-see stop for millions of tourists annually. It is steps from the New York Public Library and a few blocks away from Times Square. This makes it a natural choice when looking for a place to sit down, relax, and have a bite. The French classical-inspired design creates a calming atmosphere that is perfect for stepping away from the city noise and hustle. 

Bryant Park Fountain  

One of the most famous features of Bryant Park is the fountain. Its official name is the Josephine Shaw Lowell Memorial Fountain. It was erected in 1912 in honor of Josephine Shaw Lowell, a social worker who fought for improved working conditions for women. It is the first public monument dedicated to a woman.  

Initially, the fountain was intended to be in Corlear’s Hook Park on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. This is where Josephine focused the majority of her efforts. However, it was ultimately placed in Bryant Park in 1913. In 1936 the fountain was moved again to the other side of Bryant Park. In 1992 it received a restoration to protect and preserve it. The fountain is made from beautiful black granite. The base measures 32 feet wide with a 13-foot wide upper portion.  

Le Carrousel 

Take a ride on this delightful carousel. There are 14 characters to choose from, costing $4 per ride. There is also a 10-ride card available for $40. This is the perfect activity for children, as the carousel has a traditional design that is simply whimsical. However, the hours do vary, so you will want to check them here 



Visiting Bryant Park will have a community feel, giving you a taste of life in New York. Events are held throughout the year in the park, encouraging locals to come out and spend time together. There is an HBO movie series during the summer from mid-June to August. In July and August, Broadway in the Park brings live performances to the park. Then in November and December, there is a holiday market.  

Plenty of activities happen throughout the year, including beekeeping, birding, juggling, knitting, and ribbon dancing clubs. In addition, art classes, chess, and a myriad of games will keep you entertained. While the boot camp, limon dance, tai chi, yoga, and Fifth Avenue fitness classes will get you in shape.  

French Market 

If you plan to visit New York between April and September, you are in luck. There is a French Market that takes place in the park. You can purchase freshly cut flowers, artisanal food products, and produce. In the winter, the market is a little different, selling gingerbread cookies and hot cider.
