As autumn presses on, we begin our transformation to the winter season of the park. While you enjoy the temperate fall weather, leaves falling from the trees, and seasonal favorites like mums, you might pause to bid farewell to several things that close as we prepare to bring back the ice rink and the Holiday Shops.
Today is the final day for the lawn. Soak up those rays, grass side for the final time this year.
The chilly air also heralds the end of outdoor drinking season at the Bryant Park Cafe, which will be open through this Saturday, October 19. The Bryant Park Grill is still offering up dining al fresco in the restaurants enclosed garden, and the Southwest Porch will be open year round with heaters to keep you warm.
Toss around Kubb or putt for the last time this week at the park's putting green and kubb pitch. The Green will be open through Friday, October 18, after which it will close to allow for Holiday Shops load-in.
