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.

The history of New York City astounds me. Everywhere, literally, something important happened in history and Bryant Park is no exception. I went there to reflect the retreat of George Washington's men. Across the street is the old Aeolian building - location of the Rhapsody in Blue premiere where George Gershwin unknowingly changed the face of American popular music.

This mid town park midway between GrandCentralStation and Times Square, is worth a visit. It is a refuge from the noise and towers close by and provides a place to just rest, enjoy a good cup of coffee, some yummy food, do some people watching and take a ride on a gorgeous carousel. If you're there in the winter, rent... More

Bryant Park is the most beautiful little spot within NYC. It offers a spot to just relax in the heart of the city. The park is beautiful with lovely trees and plants, lots of tables and chairs for you to sit down with a cake and a coffee if you like. Oh and if you look towards the beautiful building... More

Lovely little park in NYC. Highly recommend the restrooms (so clean!) and the park has a charging station for mobile devices.

It is a quiet, almost deserted oasis when it gets dark. You can literally stand there alone looking at the lit up skyscrapers right in front of you with the beautiful library in the back. On the night that I was there the workers had just planted fragrant hyacinths. It is one of my favorite places in NYC, particularly at... More

Cost benefit relationship doesn't quite fits here for me. I like flavorful meals, found the menu and food to be bland - not even average.

A great little park that had an ice skating rink set up in the middle. A great place to meet friends and watch the skaters do their thing.

A medium size park, very pleasant and conveniently located. I pass there regularly. It is a typical park in NY.

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.
