The park hosts a variety of fun events, like the reading room, morning yoga, Shakespeare in the park, movie nights during the summer months, and in the winter, you can ice skate for free (permitting that you bring your own skates). Do you have a place like that, where you can go to clear your mind, and recharge? I think everyone should.
I usually go to Bryant Park to relax, catch up on a bit of light reading, or to people watch. There's something so sublime about watching people with their guards down, completely immersed in laughter, and banter, sans reticence. Those moments are usually fleeting but when I witness them, I just fall in love with humanity, all over again.
