Ask Bryant Park: How Do I Use the Programming Sign System?

In an effort to make the park extremely easy to navigate, we utilize lots of different signs. They come in a range of shapes and sizes, and serve a variety of purposes. We realize that this variety of signs could be bewildering to a guest, so here is a quick explanation of the philosophy behind our sign system. You'll be a pro at navigating the park!

This post deals with Programming Signs. For more information on other park signs, stay tuned.

Amenity Sign
These are the largest signs we have in the park. They live at our permanent activity zones (for example, the Reading Room, Ping Pong, and Le Carrousel) to offer more detailed information about activities in those areas, including the speaker schedule, tournaments, and special events.

This amenity sign at Le Carrousel goes into further detail about children's events and hosting parties.

14" x 22" Stanchion Signs
These signs live in the same zone as our weekly programs. For example, a Bryant Park Yoga sign on the Upper Terrace gives information about the program, while indicating that the program takes place in the same area as the sign. That's an easy way to find the class or event you're looking for!

The Accordions stanchion sign is located on the Fountain Terrace, so you know that is where the event takes place. 

28" x 44" Event Signs
These large signs are wheeled out for the duration that an event is taking place. These signs serve to provide more information and help in "placemaking," helping to set off an event space.

These large events signs offer information about that week's event. For example, it was Motown Week in the Dancing in Bryant Park series when this photo was taken. 

Now that you have a little bit of know-how, you'll navigate park programming and events with ease!
