Re: Slippy Totally agree with you, hfreeman. Bryant Park is truly a dynamic public space. I also love that it's frequently the host site of free public events like classical music concerts and Broadway performances.
Re: Slippy While I'm not the shopping type, I enjoy that there are pop-ups in Bryant Park, as well as the rink and, in warmer months the ping-pong, chess, bookstands, movies and so on. Bryant Park's transformation has been amazing--and it benefits both the tourist and resident.
Re: Slippy I love the pop-ups too, PostSandy, I look forward to them every year. I really love the ones down by Union Square, too. If I get a chance to go down there soon I'll see if I can find out from some of the merchants how expensive it is to set up shop there. Last year, I went down and spoke to these people who were selling magnets made of reclaimed wood, with obscure dictionary words on them, and they told me that they pretty much live off of the sales they make there during the holiday season. I can't imagine it... but that's what they said.
Re: Slippy I absolutely love those pop-ups at Bryant Park. The varieties of products are top-notch. I wonder if it costs the merchants an arm and a leg to rent for the season. The Christmas ornament shops seem to be of the same company.
Re: Slippy Nah, I was just a bystander. Watching ice skaters can be pretty mesmerizing. I've gone skating at Bryant Park before, though, and it's lovely. I am a sucker for all of these holiday markets and rinks that pop up around the city this time of year.
