All the booths are festive with an ice skating arena. Excellent food choices and shopping. The setting is tranquil and quite despite being located near a bustling area. Worth a stop.

Not as big and popular as the other parks but worth a visit. Pretty, quaint and makes for great photos. Have a cup of coffee and chill.

We stayed next door and went a lot while we were here. Loved to watch the ice skating rink. Some of the temporary vendors are expensive but again we are in NYC. Enjoy
