In Midtown Manhattan, right behind the New York Public Library, is Bryant Park. This park features gardens, a promenade, and a large lawn. There is also a cafe with patio dining and a carousel. In the winter, the pond turns into an ice skating rink where people come to enjoy outdoor skating.
There are many other events that the park holds throughout the year. In the summer, the park has a film festival with free outdoor movies every Monday. There is also a summer concert series with famous acts every Friday morning. Other events include music and Broadway performances throughout the year as well as free yoga classes. The most famous event is New York Fashion Week, held each September and February. Tents are set up along the park and designers from around the world hold runway shows to premiere their new collections. Because of Fashion Week, the park has been featured in many hit television shows, such as Bravo's Project Runway where the most talented young designers compete for a chance to showcase their work.
