Bryant is a residential neighborhood in northeast Seattle, Washington. According to the City of Seattle's neighborhood maps (as pictured), it is bounded by 35th Avenue NE and NE 45th Place on the west, beyond which is Ravenna; Sand Point Way NE and 45th Ave NE on the east, beyond which are Laurelhurst and Windermere; and NE 75th Street and NE 65th Street on the north, beyond which are View Ridge and Wedgwood.
The neighborhood is sometimes known as Ravenna-Bryant, due to its proximity to Ravenna Park. The Burke–Gilman Trail runs along the southern and eastern margins of the neighborhood, paralleling Blakeley Street, Union Bay Place, 45th Street, and Sand Point Way. Bryant Park is located on NE 65th Street at 40th Avenue NE. In late 2012 the Ravenna-Bryant association incorporated a small neighborhood bounded by 35th Avenue NE on the west, 40th Avenue NE on the east, NE 75th Street on the north, and NE 65th Street on the south. The area had previously been a 'donut hole' between the neighborhood belonging to the Ravenna-Bryant association and those of Wedgwood and View Ridge.
The North East branch of the Seattle Public Library, is located at 35th Avenue NE and NE 68th Street. Bryant is also the home to Assumption Catholic Church, University Unitarian Church, Ravenna Methodist, which houses a local preschool cooperative, and three synagogues, Congregation Beth Shalom (Conservative) at 35th Avenue NE and NE 68th Street, Emmanuel Congregation (Modern Orthodox) on NE 65th Street and 35th Avenue NE, and Congregation Shaarei Tefilah–Lubavitch (Orthodox) on NE 65th Street and 43rd Avenue NE.
Bryant Elementary School, the Nathan Eckstein Middle School, and the North East Library all have status as Seattle city landmarks, as does Fire Station #38 at 5503 33rd Avenue N.E.
Bryant Elementary School is located at 33rd Avenue NE and NE 60th Street. The school was named after William Cullen Bryant. Bryant School has an event called the Bryant Blast, now in the fall, that offers many games and food, including bouncy toys, cake walks, raffles, and more. On the 4th of July, an annual block party takes place along the two streets west of the elementary school. The neighborhood fire fighters take part (if they're not called away for an emergency) by leading the parade down the street, complete with kids pulling red wagons, decked out pets, adults dressed as historical figures and the annual Statue of Liberty lady. The neighborhood is also home to the Nathan Eckstein Middle School with one of the best music and jazz programs in the region for students.
