Did You Know...

You may know Bryant Park as Manhattan's Town Square with some pretty impressive views. Or perhaps you know it as the home of the HBO Summer Film Festival. What you probably don’t know is that Bryant Park is also home to hundreds of programs and events.
Did you know that Bryant Park just launched its Young Professional’s society? The Bryant Park Young Professionals, known as the Luminaires, is a membership-based organization for young professionals, 21-35, who work around, live near, or have professional ties to Bryant Park. Each month the Luminaires host an event for young professionals to meet and make new personal and lasting professional connections.
Did you know that Bryant Park is home to one of NYC's largest game of adult Musical Chairs? This event is back for its fourth year and it's promising to be bigger than ever. With host Ophira Eisenberg and DJ Stewey Decimal, this night is sure to be filled with some dancing and maybe a little (friendly!) pushing. You don't want to miss this epic battle to the last chair standing.
