Bryant Park is another great respite in the craziness that is New York City. On a clear day, it's just wonderful. The views of the skyline in and around the park are tremendous. It's very easy to get to -- just take the Metro to 42nd Street - Bryant Park and walk a bit. Just stop by for a sit... More

In the middle of the city, Bryant Park is a place with things to do. I spent all summer going week after week for the free Broadway shows in the park and went back for the winter to see the ice skating rink. It's such a good location that it's great whether you want to spend just 5 minutes to... More

Was there when they took the Bank of America Village and Rink down, getting ready for Spring. Just a great place to sit and collect one's self, views of the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and the Wonderful New York Public Library.

We love Bryant Park and visit often but always at Christmas time when they have the tree up and all the booths! It's a great place to walk around, shop and eat amazing crepes!! (Oh and the park has the CLEANEST public bathroom in NYC!!)

Anything green in this city is a plus. Surrounded by an energetic neighborhood and anchored by the New York Public Library it is a pleasant place to stop and catch your breath.

Just behind on the NY library, nice park full of quiosques for a cozy coffee or waffle. Or if you prefer a nice restaurant, go to the Bryant Grill. Whatever is the choice, th s is a nice spot to relax a bit, eat something and appreciate some people watching.

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.
