So with the makeover of Faneuil Hall in the works, who’s better to hire than Daniel A. Biederman, whose New York consulting firm revitalized Bryant Park in Manhattan. Mister Biederman’s role in Bryant Park’s success story mainly pertains to the attention of detail he paid to the sector of public realm within the project. So we can rest assure the same attention will be made to Faneuil Hall, which will make it a visitor controlled area that ironically lends a free spirited synergy throughout the marketplace.
“One problem now is that the outdoor seating is ‘a little bit uncomfortable and is not ideal to retain families or even pairs of people,’ Mr. Biederman said. In contrast, Bryant Park offers 5,800 movable chairs, giving visitors control over where they sit.”
