In addition to birds shitting all over your Bryant Park experience and office workers going HAM in the outdoors the second there’s a single ray of sunshine, this particular park can also be very disappointing because it is, for all intents and purposes, a pity offering.
Created as a sanctuary for office workers to rest and recharge on their lunch break, one can’t help but have only negative associations with the so-called outdoor haven. More than just a place to embrace nature in the city, Bryant Park also offers a number of restaurants and activities (yoga, movies, etc.) that are supposed to placate you. But no matter how many offerings the park comes up with, it will never be enough of a consolation for working in Midtown.
