Though often caught up in the daily hustle and bustle of the busy New York City streets, locals and tourists alike can almost always find space at Bryant Park to give their feet a rest. Footwear News took a walk over to the Manhattan haven to ask park-goers about their personal taste in celebrities and designer shoes.
