In the context of pre Christmas season then, with its large ice skating rink among the skyscrapers, the craft market and the temporary restaurant, has an incomparable charm.
I always like to visit Bryant Park during the Winter, as it gets decorated and ready for Christmas. Lot of small stalls selling gifts, decorations etc. They have Ice Rink to stake, where you can rent ... more »

Very picturesque to see young people teaching languages or older adults, playing checkers or chess. A break from the hustle and bustle of a big city.
A wonderful place in the city to let you catch your breath and see some greenery. The lawn is a great place to lay out and get some some, and they offer movies at night in the summer. The restaurant on the patio is delicious, with plenty of options and can satisfy and taste. There are many places to sit and read a book, or get a drink. The park also offers public activities and serves as a meeting place for students such as juggling classes, table tennis, photography, and other fun activities.
I always enjoy going to Bryant park especially during winter holiday and summer holiday time. During the winter holiday time, Bryant park have most of the food vendors and shops that's you can buy for Xmas or gifts for friends and families. I just recently went to Bryant park last week, they hosted free movie at the park. The Park open at 5pm for people to have picnic, it's good for families, friends or even good for couples too. They also have free water, coffees, treat and also they have few vendors where you can buy food. Most people usually just bring there own food and drinks to the park as they watch movies and hangout. Movies don't start until it's almost dark too.
Great place to relax! I love the grass which is very beautiful. I highly recommend a visit to this park because of all the marvelous activities at the park! I recommend to go to the board games (which are free to play for unlimited time.) There are also a variety of cafes to visit within the park. If I had three words to describe this park, they would be: Marvelous, Incredible, and interesting.
You could pass by this park without even realizing it, but don't! It's absolutely beautiful from every angle. I grabbed a latte from Blue Bottle Coffee across the street and drank it in the tranquility of the park among the bustle of the city. Perfect spot for a break anytime of day. Lovely fountain and picturesque foliage.
A very large, large park at the 42nd and Bryant Park stop. It is a great place to sit, read, eat lunch or people watch. There are ample seats and tables and a few outlets to charge your electronics. It is a very short walk from the main branch of the New York Public Library and literally dozens of eateries. In the summer, the Bryant Park alliance even sponsors outdoor movies. In the winter, there are small pop-up stores and is a major tourist stop. The park is very clean and safe and has a lot of private security and police. Worth a visit.
