    Bryant Park Neighborhood History

    Bryant Park earned its designation as a public space all the way back in 1686, when New York’s governor at the time, Thomas Dongan, deemed it so. Years later, in 1823, Bryant Park served as a graveyard for the poor. It did not become a park until 1847, when Reservoir Square, named after the adjacent Croton Distributing Reservoir, opened to the public.

    Reservoir Square got a new name in 1884—Bryant Park—after William Cullen Bryant, the editor of the New York Evening Post. Soon after, developers began constructing the New York Public Library, which still stands in modern-day Bryant Park. Over the years, the park suffered neglect, experienced partial revitalization, and even served as the site of a rally attended by 40,000 people trying to end the War in Vietnam.

    The future of the park changed in a very dramatic and permanent way with the establishment of the Bryant Park Restoration Corporation (BPRC) in 1980. Dan Biederman, together with Andrew Heiskell—who chaired Time Inc.—charged the BPRC with the task of revitalizing the park into a safe, productive, and beautiful place people would want to explore. The BPRC improved park paths, installed lights, set up gardens, added new entrances, and even added public restrooms. The new and improved Bryant Park reopened in 1992.
