Bryant Park had humble beginnings as a simple potter’s field and a reservoir. Now it’s lovingly nicknamed Manhattan’s Town Square as a gathering place for all New Yorkers to meet friends, enjoy the lush greenery and find some refuge in the hustle and bustle of the city. Each summer, the park is home to free movies, musical performances, and yoga classes. Come wintertime, the park is transformed into a winter village complete with ice skating and holiday shopping.
