Great place to take a break

Pleasant part in the middle of a buzy area of the city. There are lots of tables to sit at., places to buy lunch or snacks, and sometimes entertainment.

This is the coolest park if you are near the library. They have what they call the "reading room," an area where there are books/mags you can read. They have Ping-Pong tables. It's just a nice area to stop and relax.

This is one of our favorite places to just sit, relax, take in the beauty of the flowers and greenery, people watch and catch some sun rays on a nice day.

Give your feet a rest from the walking and relax in an oasis of calm in the city. Grab a coffee and watch the world go by.

One of the best parks in NYC. Always nice and clean. Chairs available to sit and enjoy the sun (if any). We had a great lunch here.

I discovered Bryant Park while walking around the city. I understand it is the most visited park in the city. There were seas of daffodils in bloom. lots of tables and chairs to sit and a stand to buy snacks. A great place for people watching and a great place to rest tired feet.

What a find! We spent a couple of lunchtimes relaxing in this Park in central Manhattan. Within a few yards you leave the hustle and bustle behind and enter a tranquil world! Tables and chairs everywhere so you can eat your lunch in comfort. Table tennis tables and a free library area really made it. And a good mix of... 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.
