After leaving the frenzy of Times Square, a friend and I headed off to find another location. It was hot, and we were tired. The cool and calm environment of Bryant Park totally derailed us from our destination. Located near the library, it stood in contrast to Times Square. Instead of crowds and hustle, there was calm and community. The park provides all the materials for the Bocce players, board games and even juggling apparatus. A small cafe offered cold drinks and small plates of food. And there was a carousel for the children.
