Owner description: 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.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This wasn't on our list of places to see, but we ended up here after seeing the NY Library and I found it enchanting on a sunny Spring day. If I lived in NYC, I'd be at the park a lot. Perhaps all the concrete was getting to me, because the park's grass and flowers drew me and made me want to sit and stay a while. The outdoor Reading Room is really charming. It had the feel of parks in Europe, or do they have the feel of Bryant Park?

“Great view, nice park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

If you want to enjoy a park while wandering around at the south tip of manhattan, bryant park is a good choice. Nice view to the statue of liberty and ellis island. During nice weather some street performers might brighten your day.
