Julia Diamond, the park's director, says they've seen record attendance for events like New Year's Eve and The Women's March. But it's more than that:

"Those are the big scale ones but what we see week after week, month after month in the park is how people also celebrate the small moments. I mean hundreds of hundreds of wedding proposals, thousands of kids birthday parties. There's just so many ways in which people have decided to make this place a part of their lives a part of the small big moments in their own lives ... that to me really reaffirms that we're a place to come together."
