Bryant Park and New York Public Library Main Branch

New York City

Surrounded by skyscrapers, Bryant Park is a public park located in Midtown Manhattan.Although technically the Main Branch of the New York Public Library is located within the park, effectively it forms the park’s functional eastern boundary, making Sixth Avenue the park’s primary entrance. Bryant Park is located entirely over an underground structure that houses the 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.

Bryant Park

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.
