A great place to just sit and take in the atmosphere of the city, people watch and have some lunch. Watch other sight seers take photographs in front of the fountain.

Walk across, play, find friends, read, work on the computer, all these things happen at once in Bryant Park. Watch the people enjoy life on a summer day in mid Manhattan and join the ping pong game, get the kids on the rides, or simply sit down and enjoy the view.

Lots of atmosphere and places to snack and sit and watch the world go by. As with everywhere nearby Times Square it was very busy.

We love every minute in Bryant Park, a little oasis in NYC to escape the hustle and bustle of every corner of the city. It's a little gem which was further enhanced with the Bank of America film festival showing free movies. It's clean and tidy and just a wonderful wonderful place.

Ideally situated piece of heaven with a nice atmosphere in this bustling city, usually music or entertainment going on but nice just to sit and relax night or day, free tables and chairs provided to take the weight off your feet with a snack or a coffee from the little cafe.

We had lunch at the rooftop restaurant in Bryant Park, and not only was the food amazing, so was the view!

This park, behind the NYC public library, is an easy meander with a small market on certain days, and always something happening. We saw jugglers and a pop up library, there is a carousel for children, and eateries in and around the park. It's a small park, well maintained.

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.
