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.

I never miss visiting Bryant Park during holidays. Something for everyone; a place for my husband to sit and sip coffee, ice skating for kids, and shopping for me. When I am done shopping and it is time to eat there are so many different booths to choose from. Keep in mind it is very crowded on Saturday.

This park is a nice small green oasis right near Times Square. Had a xmas tree and small shops when I went. Check out the eateries around the park or the stores. There is a Japanese book store right near there with fascinating items on multiple levels. Whole Foods is right there too.

While visiting New York over the Christmas and New year I went for ice skating with my husband and friends. It was a brilliant experience and I thank my friend for recommending it to us. It was freezing cold but the atmosphere at Bryant park made it such an amazing experience & a lifetime memory. Will certainly come back when... More

I love this park. I love the Bryant Park Grille and sitting outside, but the menu was limiting. 5 more

In the summer there are free movies. In the winter there is free ice skating and the Christmas Village. Be prepared to join throngs of residents and tourists. This is a bustling place on your must-see list to feel the real energy of this fabulous city.

This park is about a 5 minute walk from times square. It is had a very beautiful Christmas Tree and festive decorations, as well as ice skating and many many different markets stalls following the theme of a European Christmas Market. I found the vibe very similar to Convent Garden in London and really enjoyed our visit. Definitely worth a... More

Another beautiful attraction in NYC.... Between all the stores and food kiosks/nooks, the ice rink, the tree....relaxing and fun in certain corners and can be overwhelming in others during the holiday. Always recommend going after dark because of the lighting but fun during the day as well.

In the 1970s Bryant Park had been taken over by drug dealers, prostitutes and the homeless and was considered a no-go area by ordinary citizens and visitors. Today it is a wonderful place to sit and relax. It even has a free bathroom on the northeast corner. Bring food if you plan to stay a while. Good place to have... 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.
