Reserve Your Personalized Place in Bryant Park  


The NYC Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association & Bryant Park Corporation Join Forces to Raise Money for Alzheimer’s Care,
Support and Research and To Help Maintain the Splendor of Bryant Park

The New York City Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and the Bryant Park Corporation have joined forces on a unique new program that allows New Yorkers to honor loved ones with Alzheimer’s, people who take care of them – or to mark a special milestone by dedicating an iconic green Bryant Park bistro chair in their honor.

The new Bryant Park Memory Chair program, announced today, will raise money to support the hundreds of free programs offered by the New York City Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association that help the more than 250,000 New Yorkers—in all five boroughs—living with Alzheimer’s disease today, as well as the Association’s research program. The proceeds will also help maintain the beauty of Bryant Park – one of the City’s most unique public parks, located adjacent to the historic New York Public Library on 42nd Street and 5th Avenue.

Lou-Ellen Barkan, President and CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter, said “Through this wonderful partnership with the Bryant Park Corporation, you can dedicate a personal place in the Park to commemorate a loved one or caregiver. We have created a unique way for families to gather, share their love and dedication, and pay tribute to their loved ones in a treasured place they can call their own. With 250,000 New Yorkers living with the disease today, your support of this initiative is essential in contributing to ongoing and future programs and research.”

“We welcome the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter as a partner in our chair-naming program, one of Bryant Park’s most successful and time-honored projects,” said Daniel A. Biederman, executive director of Bryant Park Corporation.

Reserve your Bryant Park Memory Chair today for only $125 (a reduced rate from the regular $150) for this time-limited promotional program.

You will receive:
  • A 1 1/2” x 6” brass plaque inscribed with your personalized message along with the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter, logo
  • The personalized plaque mounted onto one of the iconic Bryant Park bistro chairs, imported from France
  • A digital photograph (sent via e-mail) of your personalized Memory Chair when it is placed in Bryant Park.
