A little private owned gem of a park in Manhattan,I walked past it first of all when on my way to New York public library,it was only on my way back to Times Square that I noticed it. There were tables out for people to sit at but at my time of visiting,NYC was experiencing extreme cold temperatures and were... More

The park was covered in snow and the fountain was completely frozen, totally unbelievable! There is an ice skating rink and it is pleasant to walk through.

Great little park in the middle of the City. The winter festival area is really nice with a skating rink to use in the winter months. In the summer they have some great concerts.

What's not to like about Bryant Park? It's seems to be the magnet for foot traffic in this part of town. Just think a chance to walk through a charming sun-drenched park with trees and green space instead of on concrete between sunless skyscrapers. Located behind the New York City Public Library it's easy to find and enjoy - no... More

Even it was a very cold day, the fountain was frozen, the ice rink full of skaters, we could still enjoy the view and the peace the park offers you.

I love visiting Bryant Park- there's always something going on and it's such a vibrant neighborhood! There were penguins skating there on Valentine's weekend!

I travel to NYC frequently and stay/work in the block around Bryant Park. In the summer it's a great place to sit and enjoy lunch with lots of tables outside. In the winter they have the Christmas marketplace and ice skating rink. Great location to enjoy a moment away from the reality of city life.

Bryant Park is beautiful, a small haven in the hustle and bustle of the city. In the wintertime there is a skating rink and it's right behind the New York City Public Library which is the most beautiful library I've ever visited! There is also a great pastry store called Lady M across from Bryant Park under the Bryant Park... More
