Day 64: Lunch Hour in Bryant Park

In NYC, NYC for free, NYC Parks, things to do in NYC on August 3, 2009 at 11:47 pm


With Broadway on the lawn, afternoon knitting classes, ping-pong and an open-air library known as ‘The Reading Room’, one could find something to do everyday of summer in Bryant Park. If you can handle the mob-scene, lunch hour may be the best time to go. Aside from the ton of activities and events that take place mid-day, it’s a hot time for ultimate people watching, mainly the throngs of mid-town business men and women in suits, lunching at every other table. Find a place to sit in the shadow of a tree in one of the allees or in a sunny spot next to the lawn. Bring lunch or pick something up from one of the cafe stands; take a break in an Adirondack chair on the Southwest Porch or keep busy surfing the web on free Wi-Fi. On Monday afternoons, just next to the airstream trailer at the East end, there’s a piano player. As you can probably imagine, the sweet melodies make for an unexpectedly peaceful lunch break.
