I love Bryant Park, it's not too big but still, big enough. Lots of places to sit, nice restaurant, films screening at night, carrousel for the kids, drinks... It's the perfect oasis when you need a break.

In what was years ago a place to cop dime bags of weed and trip over drunks and junkies, is now a lovely pocket park (alhough it's quite large pocket. There are usually events of some sort, from the dance performance we saw yesterday to ice skating in the winter.

Was recently in Bryant Park and found out it changed a little since my last trek there. There is plenty to do: the carousel, places to eat, a reading room, and board games. In the winter there is the ice rink, which is free to skate (small fee for skate rental). Was disappointed to find out that Celsius, the restaurant... More

Such a beautiful park located midtown next to the public library. Great for having lunch or a coffee and reading a book or catching up with a friend. Really enjoyed the vibe and bustle of the crowds but there always seemed to be a seat to find.

Bryant park is a lovely space to have some down time whilst being in the bustle of New York. Lots of green space, places to sit and nice views.

We were lucky to find this beautiful park tucked away behind the NY Library. We sat in the sun having coffee & cake whilst watching some men play bocce. We didn't have a need to use the public toilets but we discovered subsequently that they are probably the best in NY. Not only are they reported to be spotless but... More

This is a nice place for a walk in summer. Lots of people were sitting on the grass and enjoying the sun. There are ducks in the pond there.

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.
