Thank You from Fall Festival

Last week, Bryant Park Fall Festival presented by Bank of America featured over a dozen of New York City's celebrated cultural institutions. These groups came together to present 8 days of free performances, sampling some of the best the city has to offer in ballet, modern dance, jazz, opera, poetry, and kids programming. Crowds were delighted, performers exhilarated, and no one let the rain or a presidential visit to the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building of the New York Public Library stop us. We could not have done it without the generous support of our sponsors, Bank of America, HBO and The Durst Organization; and our media partners, WNET.ORG, WNYC, and amNEWYORK.

We also owe special thank yous to the teams of people at Verona Productions, Element Group, and Global Strategy Group, who helped us set-up, design and organize Fall Festival.
