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.

We walked through the park when the Christmas tree and ice skating rink were still there at the start of January. It was very pretty and lovely to walk through. If you are visiting NY it is worth stopping by.

We went to view the Christmas tree, skaters and to have my 4 year old grandson ride on the carousel. Unfortunately, he did not have a chance to ride because it closed while we were waiting on line (he would have been in the next group of riders). If you go in the evening, make sure you go to the...

We visited Bryant Park during Thanksgiving weekend and really enjoyed meandering through the craft booths. There were unique trinkets to purchase and the food booths were amazing.

Right around Xmas time, when it's nuts around Rockefeller center, this is a great place to go and unwind, have fun. They have 200+ shops to walk around, lots of yummy food, dessert, drinks, and a ton of knick knacks...and then there's ice skating! Just sitting around and sipping hot chocolate and watching the skating is fun enough. In the... More

With all the concrete and asphalt in NYC you would think there are no trees or parks. There are plenty trees and parks of all sizes. Tree covered Bryant Park right in the heart of NYC located just below Times Square and behind the NY Public Library. It is a great place to stroll through/sit and relax, grab a bite... More

I never miss visiting Bryant Park during holidays. Something for everyone; a place for my husband to sit and sip coffee, ice skating for kids, and shopping for me. When I am done shopping and it is time to eat there are so many different booths to choose from. Keep in mind it is very crowded on Saturday.

This park is a nice small green oasis right near Times Square. Had a xmas tree and small shops when I went. Check out the eateries around the park or the stores. There is a Japanese book store right near there with fascinating items on multiple levels. Whole Foods is right there too.

While visiting New York over the Christmas and New year I went for ice skating with my husband and friends. It was a brilliant experience and I thank my friend for recommending it to us. It was freezing cold but the atmosphere at Bryant park made it such an amazing experience & a lifetime memory. Will certainly come back when... More

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.
