We take the grandchild to Bryant Park for the ice skating but always enjoy spending time looking thru the food and merchandise stalls. Skating is free but the skate rentals are $20. Very busy in the evenings but lots of room in the early PM.

Wide open Bryant park and its ships with new ice rink outside is great. On 6th and 42nd easy walk from anywhere. Have lunch at the Southwest park cafe. Awesome vegan entrees. Then hit the bakeries for sweets afterward.

We visited on a Saturday night and decided not to skate as the crowd and queue were crazy. We went back on a weekday morning and got straight on the ice with very few others. Lots of fun!
