Bryant Park has a French-style merry-go-round, open year-round, plus a well-maintained lawn, with chairs and tables. The outdoor Reading Room has picture books and summertime story times. In winter. Take a spin on the free ice-skating rink. The park also has clean bathrooms, a rarity in midtown.

Nice little tree lined park close to Times Square, great place to sit with a drink or snack and take the weight off your feet. Lots of takeaways and street stalls very close. Large grass area in the middle where you can sit or plenty of tables around the sides. Popular with locals and tourists. There are also some events... More

Lots of public seats here so I nip across the road and grab a coffee and enjoy the free wifi and watch New Yorkers go about their business. There's stalls and markets at various times of the year

This is a welcomed green space conveniently located in a very built up area. The park hosts a number of special seasonal events which attract a multitude of visitors. In the off periods it provides space to just chill and people watch. Great place for tired feet and to meet. Hassle- free. Suggest you consult events diaries for up coming... More

We were in New York for a few days and having gone for a walk we arrived at Bryant Park. This is a lovely area just to take a break and to chill out and watch the people go by.

Love this little gem in the middle of the city and the garment district. Always something going on here from little shows to pop up shopping and there are also 2 really nice restaurants to chose from in the park but they are pricy.

Our favourite park! Roughly the size of a soccer field, this park is a great place to relax, get into some activity or just people watch. There is a lawn in the centre where people are having picnics or just soaking up the sun. Every twenty metres or so there is some activity going on. There is a reading area,... More

This is by and large one of the best parks in NYC. On a Saturday it is good to just go sit and people watch, try your hand at some of the sports on offer or even have a drink as you sit in nature. In the built up world of NYC, it is a small escape. Do mind the... 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.
