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.

Bryant Park is one of New York's gems. If you are out for a long walk and need a break, it's a great place to stop. You can get lunch or a snack, sit under the trees, and watch life go by. Most importantly, it has REST ROOMS. That's important. They were in good shape last time I was there.... More

Loved this park. Free ping pong. Great coffee at the kiosk. Listened to free jazz and the newly upgraded rest rooms. Very smart

What a gem! There is so much to do in Bryant Park which is right in the middle of everything. There are pick up games such as ping-pong, chess, kubb, mini golf and more. FREE! There is also a library that you can sit in and have free Wi-Fi. They have the cleanest bathrooms in the whole city.

Walking around Manhatan, between 5th and 6th avenue, right behind Public library is Bryant Park. In the winter, they have a huge ice skating rink. In the summer, they have so much green, birds, people chating, having lunch or a drink... stoping by a little moment to do nothing...

There are vendors out at Christmastime. May be there other times but we went Christmastime. There are so many vendors from earring to clothes to everything in between. Its great to stop by and find something for a last minute gift.

This is a pretty park. People come and bring blankets and sit and there are tables around also. Places to get food and just watch the world go by. At certain times there are activities scheduled such as juggling or music. Fine restaurant there also if you wish.

We stayed nearby and returned a couple of times. On our last day, we had a fabulous lunch on the terrace. The crab meat tacos were outstanding and a nice surprise.

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.
