Today, there are nearly 400 Memory Chairs in Bryant Park (located adjacent to the New York Public Library on 42nd Street and 5th Avenue), and every chair tells a story. The Chairs have been dedicated to mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives, and partners and friends – all of whom have been impacted by Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. The Bryant Park Memory Chair program is an opportunity to claim a special place in the heart of one of New York City’s most celebrated parks, while honoring a loved one with dementia, thanking an extraordinary caregiver, or marking a special milestone in your life.
Your personalized plaque will be mounted on one of the chairs in Bryant Park, and inscribed with your personal message and the CaringKind logo. Not only will you contribute to the legacy of a loved one, but your donation will support the work of CaringKind, raise awareness about one of the most devastating diseases of our time, and support the ongoing efforts to maintain the beauty of Bryant Park.
