Bryant Park By The Numbers: The Bottom Line

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. The data help us identify trends in park usage, predict problems, and operate the park efficiently. 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. 

69. On June 26, Bryant Park Tai Chi set a one-day attendance record with 69 participants. Come see for yourself what makes Bryant Park Tai Chi so popular. It meets Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7:30 - 8:30am, at the Fountain Terrace. 

By taking counts at our tai chi classes, we know that attendance is growing this year. 

38. Heading into peak season, Bryant Park Corporation has a staff of 38 dedicated sanitation and hospitality employees poised to keep the park clean and well maintained for thousands of daily visitors.

605 park visitors enjoyed free art and craft supplies from the Bryant Park Art Cart during its opening month.

499. Fans of Le Carrousel at Bryant Park are learning that the Discount Card, giving ten rides for $15, is the best deal in town. In June, we sold a record 499 cards. 

Tallying Discount Card sales at Le Carrousel help us gauge interest in group carrousel rides, and plan for other possible discount programs. 

110An Indigo Bunting was spotted on one of the last 2014 Spring Birding Tours, bringing the total number of bird species officially seen at Bryant Park to 110. Look for Fall Birding Tours to begin on Thursday, September 25.

77 pallets, each with 600 square feet of sod grown in Long Island, were delivered to the park for the Bryant Park lawn installation on Saturday, March 22.
