“Lovely space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Such a lovely, spacious park in the middle of the hustle & bustle of New York & next to NY Public Library. Buy lunch & sit at one of the many tables & chairs & enjoy the atmosphere.

“Don't miss the movies at Bryant Park on Monday evenings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Great movies at Bryant Park on most Monday evenings during the summer months; tomorrow night is the African Queen with Hepburn and Bogart. There are usually enough chairs for everyone and there is light food available (early). It is a wonderful experience to be there. I saw Frenzy there a couple of weeks ago and it was one of those perfect summer nights to be out of doors enjoying a classic movie.

“Cute oasis in a concrete jungle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Walked by, multiple types during my visit but finally came to one of the activities. It was accordion Thursday where different people played along the park and you just sit where you like the most. They do plenty free activities like yoga, tai chi, reading out loud( for adults),etc.

I think is like a little get away in the city to sit and relax for a second. Its great for families, friends or if you are a loner and just like to be by yourself

“Wonderful public space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The best place to have lunch and feel the vibe of New York. Located just next to the Public Library and surrounded by impressive and imposing buildings and trees it makes a perfect place to sit down and relax and still enjoy the greatness of the city.

The are loads of tables and chairs so you'll always find a place to sit down and there are also clean public toilets available
