Got here around 8 am and it was so peaceful to just sit and watch the world go by. It is very well kept and a beautiful piece of nature in the heart of the city. It was also perfectly safe, no worries like in Central Park.

A beautiful park bang in the middle of Manhattan where you can stop to people watch, read and relax, and have some lunch. Very well kept and tidy. Although its well used there is always a space to grab a seat in between sightseeing or shopping. Food and drinks available and reasonably priced. Love it!

Went here 3 or 4 times, lots of little table and chairs to sit and eat lunch in the sunshine with a view of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler building. Smaller than Central Park but I prefered it.

On a warm day, after a tour of the Library next door, we had a pleasant meal here. The outdoor cafe overloks the lovely Bryant Park, a great midtown place to relax.

I've only been here during the Christmas season. So I was pleasantly surprised at the activity going on there when we recently walked through it.

At the end of a very tiring day, feet hurt, just wanted somewhere to sit down! Was this where I saw beehives? Can't remember now!

Back when I worked in the area -- during the Paleozoic Era -- this was a den of bums, junkies, and undesirables. It was completely transformed during the Giuliani and Bloomberg administrations, and is now a great space, though with the requisite restaurants and other commercial touches. The game rentals are a nice touch, though. Nice place to stop on... More

Nice to see green grass freshly laid following the winter & a variety of bulbs & annuals surrounding the park. The trees & characters sitting around the park provided a terrific atmosphere. To top it off, there are a few coffee/cake "shops" around that enable you to partake in some yummy treats whilst soaking up the atmosphere

Right in the heart of Manhattan sits a wonderful park with a really special atmosphere. Lots of tables and chairs to enable you to sit, read and relax for hours on end taking in the spirit of Manhattan. A number of restaurants and bars to choose from within the park and lots more just across the road.if you fancy a... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
