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.

Small Park in the middle of the city. You are better off going to central park which is huge in comparison.

A very special little park, all year long. In the winter, there is a Christmas market and ice skating, in the summer, there are concerts and outdoor dining, as well as the carousel. Just beautiful.

Great little spot for a breather and a coffee between sight-seeing. Beautiful green lawn and flowers. Blue Bottle coffee shop across the road and the library at one end. If I lived in NY I would be a regular!

Since I live across the river in NJ I am able to frequent the city pretty often. This was my 1st time in Bryant Park and I really enjoyed it. My friend visiting from Colorado needed to hit a store a few blocks away so we passed the park on the way but decided to grab lunch and dine in... More

As much as Central Park is a must do for every NY visitor Bryant Park can match it in so many ways. It's by far the cleanest and well maintained park I've been is for quite a while. The facilities are excellent, an abundance of seats and tables, ample coffee and snack kiosks. We found ourselves enjoying a picnic in... More

A nice, soothing place to rest, gather one's thoughts, place a game of checkers or chess, or just take a load off for a few minutes. It has the nicest patch of lawn I've seen in the city. It's not very big, but they've packed lot of cool into what there is. Here's a peak if it in Spring:

Went here to find some small gifts for family members. Wonderful variety of unique crafts and lots of branded outlets too. Loads of lovely stalls and hot drinks and festive smells. Definitely worth a visit over the holiday season. My fav was the clock made from a vynal record. Got it for my father in law's music room. Of course... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
