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.

“Nice Spot to Relax”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This was on my list for this trip to NYC. It is right behind the NYC Public Library, which was also on my list. While waiting for the library to open, we toured the park. It is very nicely landscaped and amazingly well maintained. They were setting up for winter with the installation of the ice rink, and what looked like booths for vendors. There are spots to order food and drinks, and also a little carousel. Seating is available all over the area. Kind of a nice oasis in downtown... Need to put on your list

“Great space in centre of NY”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

On my first full day in NY I was stumbling through crowded streets and Avenues, rather enjoying the noise and bustle that goes with all of that, when I came upon Bryant Perk, quite by accident. I had seen it marked on the map but did not imagine it would be such a pleasing and peaceful green space. Such a delightful place to sit and and while away some time midst the craziness of the city. Some fine dining available close by, and a delightful round-a-bout for small children to ride, or should it be called a Carousel here? I'm not sure. Close to the library so a place to come and read your book, or an ideal site for city workers to bring their sandwiches and just chill out for an hour. Such a delightful space.

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Bryant Park is one of my favorite places in New York. The atmosphere is fantastic. But I rather go there when the Citi Pond is not operating.

“Pretty sweet park”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

Lots if history, lots of lunch time folk milling about. As far as NYC parks go, it's great. All it's missing is a Wichcraft in the middle of the park.
