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.

“magcial in winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I have been to Bryant Park during several seasons and each time it has been different. In the fall, the beautiful autumn leaves and hustle and bustle are great but my favourite time is in December, they have the best ice skating rink set up and the market stalls are brilliant. loving the whole atmosphere that bryant park brings. you can sit and just chill out with a latte or participate in the activities they provide.. do as little or as much as you want.

“Bryant Park charming”

My husband and I had a drink one early evening just enjoying the park. Highly recommend going there after checking out the NY Public Library. Bryant Park is right in back.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Loved sitting in this park. It has a great vibe, and is a really pleasant place for a sit down. Looks like a nice place for locals to hang out during the day. They also show old movies in the park during the summer.
