Adjacent to the New York City Public Library, the park's expansive lawn, decorated with monumental sculptures and stately fountains, provides a place to sit and escape the bustling city. Feel like a kid again with a ride on the Heritage Carousel, or test your luck with a game of chess against a local. Stop by the Reading Room, the park's open-air library, to browse through a book or a copy of the local newspaper.

  • We visited first when we went to the Library( entrance from 5th Ave),which is located in the park. Park itself is tiny. On the adjacent streets there are several cafes,bakeries. In the evening nice...  more »
  • We stayed in a hotel near this park and it gets a lot of use 12 months a year, including a skating rink in the winter. A nice antidote to the sensory overload of Times Square nearby.  more »
  • Bryant Park was having a winter fest while we are there. Ice skating, small shops and food. Great place to sit outside or in an igloo and relax.  more »

  • Bryant Park has their Winter Village (lovely pop up shops) & free summer activities. They have their Art Cart from April-October. For this winter, they have brought back the ice bumper cars. Reservations go very fast. It is a 10 min time limit and it is not free. However, the pop up shops are lovely to look around at.
  • We tried the ice skating rink, and it was a great deal of fun. A good place to see and be seen. The service is good. They have restrooms you can use while wearing skates. You need a reservation, but the price is free.
  • Bryant Park in the Christmas season, a brilliant frenzy of delightful little shops and cafes. It was a wonderful display of small business, warm food, and free ice skating. Even in the fog it was fun to see all creative ideas coming to life.
  • This is located in the NY borough of Manhattan. I visited this park with my family in November when the Winter village sponsored by Bank of America began. It was extremely beautiful with multiple boutique stores having delicious food, chocolates, books, candles and gifts. We tried the hot chocolate at 'No Chewing Allowed' store and enjoyed the drink in the cold. There was also a lovely ice-skating rink open for public. If you bring your own skates, entry cost would reduce a bit. Overall, it's a lovely place to visit and I enjoyed visiting the Bryant Park.
  • An Oasis in the heart of NYC. What an awesome experience both in winters and summers. Good food and drinks. Ice skating rink is one of the best experience here. The small pop up shops makes it a amazing experience. Must visit for the whole family
