When we started this blog in 2009, one of our goals was to bring you face to face with some of the park's talented managers. And we figured, why not start at the top?
Meet Dan Biederman, President of the Bryant Park Corporation, the man responsible for reclaiming the park from vagrants and drug dealers in the 1980s and instituting management techniques that turned the park into the thriving public space you visit today. (Read more about Dan here)
We tagged along on one of Dan's regular walks through the park and, inspired by its spring transformation, asked him for an overview on the maintenance and management of the lawn.
