One of my favourite parks ever. A postage stamp on 6th Avenue. Nearly always something going on. Plenty of shady places from the sun when it's hot and openness when it's not. The park has been transformed for the better in the recent past and we always try to visit. Worth finding.

Every time we visited or went by this park it was being enjoyed by many many people What a beautiful place of tranquility in the centre of a frantic busy city! And what a variety of activities or places of calm reflection there are within the boundaries The beautiful and lush vegetation must be doing its bit to purify the... More

Always enjoy eating here when in midtown. Make reservations. Very crowded with well heeled businessmen in suits. Sandwiches are attractive and hearty.

When we visited there was a stage set up with actors from Broadway musicals performing. Lots of people were sitting watching and just enjoying the atmosphere. It was a lovely place to relax after a tour of the library and just enjoy a bit if greenery in a bustling city.

Bryant Park is easily one of my favorite places in New York. I watched the USA-Belgium World Cup game here, which was shown on a disappointingly small television. Nevertheless, the atmosphere was great and classic New York. I also came here for Broadway in Bryant Park and brought a blanket and lunch. The audio could have been better, but the... More

Bryant park is lovely in the winter when it transforms into an ice skating rink surrounded by a Christmas market. In the summer they have open air movies here. It is very close to the theatre district.

I really enjoy this little park with all of it's little bistro tables set up every where. In the warmer months it's the perfect park to sit down and have a bite to eat, ready a book maybe. For some reason this time you could not go out on the lawn. The is an open air seasonal restaurant/bar as well... More

Met a lovely elderly gent who goes there every day to read the newspapers and is happy to tell you all about the park-proud New Yorker who will share the insider secrets with you-introduced us to Michael who...

If you can relax with hundreds of people around this would be the place to go. Everyone in the park in the center of NYC was having a great time during their lunch hour. Some just laying on the center lawn sunbathing catching the last rays of summer, others having their brown bag lunch or enjoying a lunch from a... More
