Bryant Park by the Numbers: Chair Plaques, Boot Camp, and More!

We keep thousands of data points about the park, from the number of chairs we have to the number of guests we have during the day. Every week, we share a new data point in our e-newsletter, MidCity News, in a section called "Bottom Line." Here is a selection of some of our recent Bottom Lines. 

1: The Josephine Shaw Lowell Memorial Fountain at Bryant Park, dedicated in 1912, holds the distinction of being the first public monument in New York City to honor a woman.

54: Jump start your Wednesday with Bryant Park FitClub: Boot Camp with The Rise NYC. On March 25, 54 participants attended the 6:30am session, and left feeling energized and ready for the day.

Participants in Boot Camp aren't deterred by the cold! 
19,658: Last year, 19,658 attendees enjoyed 110 performances of Piano in Bryant Park from May through October. We thank our partners Local 802 Musician's Union, Sam Ash Music, Jazz Center of New York, and Music Performance Trust.

187: Thanks to our partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, we recently added 187 chair plaques dedicated to Alzheimer’s patients to the park. Visit Bryant Park Shop to dedicate a chair plaque to a loved one.

846: This past summer, in the same park where skaters and shoppers enjoyed the amenities at Bank of America Winter Village, we presented 846 warm-weather classes and events.
