A friend and I were passing by and stopped for some coffee, which was great. Cute shops and food kiosks. We were able to grab a table and had a nice view of the Empire State Building.

I loved the outdoor ice skating, the many places to sit and watch the skaters and the trees in the middle of the city.

A lovely little oasis in the middle of a big, busy city. Upon entering one can take a deep breath and leave stress out on the sidewalk.

This is a better park to ice skate and see a Christmas Tree for the holidays and they have cute little huts for shopping. Good place to buy things that are unique. Fun park without the huge crows that Central Park and Rockefeller Center bring.

When I was there in the evening there was a ice-ring for skating and a lot of cozy stands with food and drinks. Pretty nice to see something like that on a small scale in such a big city.

Bryant Park is a tiny paradise in the middle of the skyscrapers. At night fairy lights are the witness of reunions of friends with a glass of wine and some comfy cushions.

A great spot for ice skating, a mix of experienced and newbies (like me) but what's a visit to NYC in January without some ice skating?

This park is a nice escape to the craziness of times square. The park has a very nice restaurant, although a bit expensive. In winter there is a skate ring that is very lively and nice. In summer, there are concerts.
