I thought holiday market are all the same around the world. But obvious the tourism industry is improving and there are many interesting little things to see here. And there are also many different types of food to try.

WOW, what a surprise! Had no idea that there was a mini winter wonderland going on there. Complete with Christmas tree and ice skating.

Located behind the NY Public Library, The Winter Village in Bryant Park is a not-to-miss attraction when visiting the city for the holidays. From October through March, the park is transformed into a winter wonderland, including an ice skating rink, holiday shops (Oct-Jan) and a pop up indoor/outdoor restaurant called Celsius. Ice skating is free and open to the public... More

The tree was nice but not as nice as the one at R. Center. Rink was crowded. Nice choices for something to eat and a variety of shops.

The shops were alright. The skating rink looked nice and big which was better than Rockafeller center. The whole park was pretty packed though. We didn't end up spending a whole lot of time there.

Bryant Park was my default station during my NYC Christmas visit. I was so impressed by the wonderful atmosphere. Good natured crowds of people skating, shopping at the shops of the Winter Village and the great music backdrop, make it an ideal location. Surrounded by the great office blocks and the impressive Library, Bryant Park is a New York Gem... More

The Christmas market was great. Try the hot cider only $5 for two! The ice skating looked fab but we didn't participate. The lights at night were another lovely must see. The Christmas tree didn't rival the Rockefeller but it was quite beautiful.

Bryant Park has a great winter village that is very cute for couples, family, or even a solo shopping trip. They have cute little shops to buy Christmas ornaments, winter accessories, or unique little trinkets. They also have quaint cafés with a wide selection of food. I recommend the crepe cafe for a delicious crepe with anything you can imagine... More

Oh we LOVE visiting Bryant park at Christmas. We love the shops, the Christmas tree and the whole atmosphere. The highlight of our visit is Max Brenner's hot chocolate. We overheard someone calling the hot chocolate a winter prize. We could not agree more. This hot chocolate is worth waiting in line for as long as it takes.

This is a great park for anything that is offered. I would like to recommend the Lecture Series Bryant Park offers in Cooperation of the NYPL. They also have a nice Winter Shopping area and Ice Rink which is free but you pay for skate rental. If you have your own skates better as the skates they rent are intentionally... More
