34th Street Update: New Programming at One Penn Plaza

You may not be aware that we here at Bryant Park manage public spaces in other parts of the city. Our sister district, the 34th Street Partnership, covers the area between Park and 10th Avenues and 31st and 35th Streets. 

Blog readers who live and work near Penn Station may be pleased to know that we've teamed up with Vornado Realty Trust, a property owner in our 34th Street Partnership district, to enliven the plazas surrounding One Penn Plaza. The three plazas, located between 7th and 8th Avenues and 33rd and 34th Streets, surround one of the largest office buildings in the area on top of the busiest commuter hub in the city. 

The collaboration between Vornado and 34th Street Partnership means that we're bringing the activities you love further south. Just like the activities at Bryant Park and Broadway Boulevard, the events are completely free and open to the public. They are aimed at helping the hundreds of thousands of office workers in the area enrich their days with fitness classes and breaks during the workday that enhance productivity and increase mental focus.  

Strengthen your body with twice-weekly vinyasa-style yoga classes with Studio Anya on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 7:30am. Some mats are provided, but bringing your own is encouraged. Gain mental stability with meditation classes in partnership with Ziva Meditation, every Thursday at 3pm. You'll recharge your mind during the 3pm, post-lunch slump and remain energized for the remainder of the day.

Those who want a more intense workout should check out the following classes. Punk Rope, which brings high-intensity cardio and jump roping together, meets every Monday at 12:30pm and is a great way to raise your heart rate during your lunch hour. Boot Camp with Warrior Fitness Boot Camp, which meets Fridays at 7am, is a calisthenics-style workout led by two former Marines that will get you ready for the weekend.

For other mental breaks during the workday, you might join the Bryant Park jugglers, who migrate south each day during the business week, from 2 to 4pm. Learn to juggle in the plaza, and you might juggle the tasks better at your desk. Each Tuesday from 3 to 4pm, learn the ancient and calming art of origami. You'll de-stress as you impose order on the crisp folds of paper before you. 

Brightly colored origami paper brings people together every Tuesday at 3pm. 
Every Wednesday, the Penn Plaza French Market brings a variety of fresh produce, prepared foods for a scrumptious lunch, and handmade crafts and jewelry that are perfect for a quick browse on the way back to the office. Fans of the Broadway French Market will notice the markets are similar; they are both produced by Bensidoun USA.

Enjoy nature's bounty every Wednesday at the One Penn Plaza French Market. 

Unwind after a busy work day with jubilant brass band performances. The performances are three times weekly, starting at 5:30; check our website for the week's performers and dates. 

Joyous brass brightens up the end of the workday. 
Stay tuned as we add other events, programs, and classes to the lineup.
