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.

Another "must visit" site. It has free ice skating in winter and lots of lovely stalls. At Christmas there is a big, beautiful Christmas tree and the food stalls are many and varied with lots of seating available. The cleanest public toilets are in this park. It is next to the magnificent New York library.

I love Bryant Park all year long, but December is special because of the pop up vendors and the beautiful items for sale. And don't forget to see the Tree and Ice Rink! Have a hot cider at the cafe.

Visiting in November the rink and winter village were open and it's a lovely spot with lots of facilities for food drink and shopping, the parks very central and has the backdrop of the beautiful library. Lots of nice places to eat and drink nearby and close proximity to Times Square and grand central.

We were enchanted when we came upon Bryant Park while walking around the city. Lots of white lights, vendors, food vendors, crafts, jewelry. Lots of tables and places to sit and relax or have something to eat. Ice skating rink was open. It was a lovely surprise.

Bryant Park is always nice to visit. But, it's especially special during the winter when the pop up shops are opened. Which is November / December. Love walking around and watching people.

Really nice park, especially in the summer. I highly recommend the movie nights! The New York Public Library is near and definitely a must see!

This is the perfect place to go and feel the Christmas spirit. Free ice skating, huge Christmas trees, tons of small kiosk with food, trinkets, ornaments and stuff from around the world. We enjoyed just sitting there and watching all the people walking by while listening to the music. I LOVED IT!!!

This park is all a giant open air market now, with skating in the middle. But it isn't really what I think of as a park at all. Disappointing!

Wife and I have been to Bryant Park on several occasions. It is always a Pleasant outdoor experience. Reminds me of a Crafts Fair. Numerous specialty shops in tents. Friendly shopkeepers who are more than happy to assist you. Food and drink available.

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.
