“Quaint Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

This is my favorite park in NYC. It's small and quiet. Ice skating and vendors at Christmas make it very special.

“Superb park near to Times Square”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

We visited over Christmas and the park was set up as a winter wonderland. The ice skating rink was in the middle of the park surrounded by lots of little stalls selling Christmas items. They park was decorated really elegantly and was well worth spending the time there we did, the markets were selling food from around the world and had different taste to cater from most people. The ice rink was really busy but was much bigger and cheaper and the rockerfeller center rink.
