Bryant Park Corporation and 34th Street Partnership seek a full-time, paid intern as a member of the Events Department staff. The two companies are award-winning not-for-profit Business Improvement Districts which share staff and offices, and a mission to improve the quality of the commercial, physical, and public space environments in each of their midtown Manhattan districts. Successful public spaces offer high-quality events and programming that draw people to the space and enrich the community.

The position is full-time with hourly pay. The successful candidate can expect a schedule of approximately 40 hours per week. Compensation is $15/hour.

  • Help coordinate and execute Bryant Park’s hundreds of public summer events, including Movie Nights, theater, music, dance, classes, and tours
  • Act as a friendly and helpful ambassador for Bryant Park when helping with events
  • Assist with commercial, cultural, film and media events in the park
  • Assist with promotion efforts related to the park’s events
  • Supervise large event load-ins/load-outs in the park, which frequently involves early morning, late night, overnight, and/or weekend hours
  • Work extensively outdoors, interacting with park staff and event producers
  • Respond to inquiries from potential event producers
  • Conduct research projects and comparative studies related to events and park operations
