About
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.

Top ways to experience Bryant Park
The area
Neighbourhood: 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.
How to get there
  • 42nd St – Bryant Park • 1 min walk
  • Times Square • 3 min walk

Bryant Park in December has the best ice rink (skating is free) and a brilliant Christmas market, just a great place to shop Christmas and relax with a drink hot or cold and watch the fun of the rink. Favourite park in New York

The market seems to get better every time we visit the park, the food on offer is great & there is a real Christmassy feel to the atmosphere.

Bryant Park is lovely, especially around the holidays. The one thing I must write about is the Hot Chocolate station called "No Chewing Allowed"

By far the best hot chocolate I've ever had. During the holiday season, its become a tradition that I walk around all the small shops looking for their stand. It's amazing!

Bryant Park Christmas Village is lovely. Lots of stalls, a huge Christmas tree and of course, the ice rink.
It can get very crowded at the weekend, especially in the evenings.
One thing that completely ruined the experience, and this goes for everywhere in New York, was the constant smell of industrial strength cannabis! Made me feel ill.

We found several unique buys from the vendors such as jewerly, artwork.
There was a wide variety of food and unique items to purchase. It’s compact and easy to navigate. Several people were skating in the rink which was nice.. We would recommend it.

At the moment of my visit a big area of the park is closed due the work for the Christmas village. If you want to relax and eat something is very good

We came to NYC a few weeks ago and found out that the Winter Village had just started the day prior. It was exciting, beautiful, different and we found many, many unique gifts there to bring home.

This is a classic that continues to please. Whether you go in winter to ice skate and visit the kiosks or do yoga in the warm weather or go to one of the night time movies where you sit on the lawn and watch great flicks, or just grab a drink at the patio bar., you will not be disappointed.
