Bryant ParkNew York City, New York U.S.A.
- Before its 1979-1992 renovation, Bryant Park’s poor design caused it to be overwhelmed by drug use and criminal activity.
- The redesign of Bryant Park pioneered research that showed how design impacts human behavior. The new park is a model for how public places can facilitate human interaction.
- The park renovation, completed in 1992, functions as a green roof for an underground portion of the New York Public Library.
- A private, non-profit company supplies all the funding for Bryant Park and also manages park maintenance and event programming.
