Bryant Park

City: Rediscovering the Center

This product is on

By William H. Whyte.

This follow-up to The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces is an engaging look at the variety of human interactions that make "downtown" vibrant. Whyte looks at such diverse topics as pedestrian movement, concourses and sky ways, and sunlight and its effects, all from the perspective of a confirmed city-lover. His observations and recommendations can be read with profit and pleasure by professional planners and readers interested in what makes a city tick.

The success of the Bryant Park's renovation and renewal is in part the product of the work and ideas of remarkable authors. This is one book that championed the ideas on which we have built Bryant Park's management, or that dedicated some of its content to Bryant Park.
