I love this park. It's so nice and beautiful with the buildings in background. The winter village is really nice with the ice rink and the holiday markets. The Christmas tree was so big and beautiful.This is my favorite park in NYC. In summer it's absolutely awesome!!!

This is always a great park during any season, but during the Christmas season it is even more complete with an ice skating rink, Christmas shops, and various food stands. Remember what's below you when you are shopping, skating, and eating--thousands and thousands of books sent up to the adjoining New York Public Library!!

This was the nicest place for me during Christmas. Old and new were together with Christmas lights, songs and skating. In the winter village there were a lots of crafts, so definitely could by something special. I liked this Christmas tree better than the Rockefeller one. Therefore, I've got the special American - New York Christmas feeling. Thanks, that was my purpose to be here.

This is a lovely park in central NY. It is full of life at every hour of the day, has various quieter corners to sit and enjoy the view of the skyscrapers embracing the park. It also has a lovely restaurant with a conservatory on the higher part of the park, close to the NY Public Library building. They set up skating ring during winter and all sorts of eateries and stalls selling souvenirs etc.

Over Xmas & New Year Bryant Park have its own Ice Skating rink - very popular. Also a kind of Xmas Market where you can buy something different but at a reasonable price. Unique stalls as well as a place to get a coffee
