About the Blog

Who We Are
The Bryant Park Blog gives you information about park activities, events, and operations directly from the source. Written by employees of the Bryant Park Corporation, the non-profit organization that manages the park, the blog hopes to keep you updated, as well as answer your questions.

Did you ever wonder...

  • how a giant bed appeared on the Fountain Terrace overnight?
  • where the Bryant Park lawn comes from?
  • why crews are digging a hole on the south side of the park? 
The Bryant Park Blog answers these questions and more. Let us know what you’re curious about, interested in, or want to see in the park.

Kati S., Bryant Park’s lead blogger, brings you the behind-the-scenes scoop from midtown's backyard. She also manages Bryant Park on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Foursquare, in addition to running many of the park's programs and amenities like Ping Pong, Language Classes, the Southwest Porch and Meet the Birds.

In her role as BPC Archivist, Anne researches, catalogs, and preserves the history of the park, including its events, and continually changing landscape. She also fields internal and external historical inquiries, and strives to keep the park’s past and present connected. She stops in from time to time to share her findings with us through her From the Archives posts.

Tricia, our resident retail blogger, writes about fashion in the 34th Street District as Fashion Herald. We tap Tricia for shopping news and deals in the ever-growing retail area that surrounds the park.
