An Evening In New York City's Bryant Park

Like many of New York's parks in the 1970's Bryant Park had it's share of the dark side. A partnership of New York City and private businesses has  transformed it. Attractions and activities vary, from Ice Skating in the winter months to summer evening movies on the lawn.
