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.

Lovely park to walk around or just sit and enjoy the view. We got coffees and hung out. We were tourists but noticed a lot of NYC professionals having lunch and coffee.

Spent 3 weeks in New York and went here about 5 times. Is the best park by far in NYC. Great shade, heaps of different people users, free things to do, reading spots, restaurants etc. great place just to stop and escape the hussle. Don't miss it.

Great oasis in the middle of the city. Nearby cafes are useful to take to a table in the park. Check out the library and free events. Seasonal setups are either wonderful or annoying depending on your view. Calm place to sit down.

A lovely environment and a good focal point for travellers! We found that if our family wanted to split up we would always say "meet at Bryant at this time!"

It's a nice place to have lunch if you work around the area. They usually have things going on - in the summer they have various Broadway shows, entertainment, ect.

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.
